Kaiser Wilhelm Serving Dish

This is a square serving bowl / dish made by Meissen in 1898 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:) A great dish with a relief design to the rim with four bugs in between, a large central floral arrangement and lots of scattered smaller flowers and more bugs. Gold trim to the edge. 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 piece is in superb condition with a small ground down area along the edge in one corner as shown but this was done at the factory since the gilding is continuous and was not redone and that can only be done by Meissen themselves. One small firing crack to the foot ring on the udnerside as shown. It displays perfectly and is really a very nice dish! The dish is 1.75 inches tall and 9.375 inches wide at the widest point. It is marked underneath with the under glaze blue crossed swords as well as the usual impressed markss common to Meissen pieces of this period and off course the WR under a crown and the year 1898 under that. Please email me for more information or other pictures.

Price is $999
