Kaiser Wilhelm II Sauce Dish

This is a rare gravy dish / sauce boat made by Meissen in 1893 for the personal use of Kaiser Wilhelm the Second. Quite rare as he preferred the ones made by KPM of which I own a few (not to say those are common either:) I have actually never seen anything but cups and plates over all these years so this is rather special! The sauce dish has an attached underplate. Both the main dish and the underplate have a great relief design to the rim with four bugs in the blank areas in between, a large central floral arrangement in the bottom inside of the dish and lots of scattered smaller flowers and more bugs. Two nice handles highlighted with gilding and gold trim to the edges. What makes this piece special besides being a nicely done piece is the fact that it was made for the Kaiser and has his personal monogram on the back! The dish is in great condition with the underplate being perfect but sadly one of the handles of the dish has been off and reglued though it is far from obvious when on display! That is probably the reason is is around these days and has survived. The underplate is 1.125 inches tall, 9.75 inches wide and 6.5 inches deep. The sauce dish is 3 inches tall, 8.75 inches long and 4.25 inches deep (plus the handles). It is marked underneath with the underglaze blue crossed swords as well as the WR under a crown and the year 1893 in blue. Please email me for more information or other pictures.

Price is $1499
