Lazy Susan Blue Onion Serving Dishes

This is a really cool piece - a lazy susan wooden base with five sectional porcelain dishes and a lidded central one made by Meissen in the 19th century. The lazy susan base is made of Mahogany or Walnut not sure which one. The porcelain pieces are all decorated with their famous blue onion aka Zwiebelmuster design before they added the extra crossed swords mark to the base of the stalk. Normally the central dish would just be an oven circular piece but it was replaced by the lidded deep plate here which I think is nice. A perfect thing for your next party - lots of snacks can go into the five dishes and a larger dish could go into the center. Some sort of warm dip maybe. It looks stunning with the combination of the blue and white porcelain and brown wood base. The base turns perfectly and smoothly and is in great condition - could use a new coat of polyurethane but looks great the way it is. The five sectional dishes are in perfect condtion as is the central lid but the plate has a chip to the edge. A fairly easy thing to replace if need be with a perfect match but it looks fine as is. The entire piece has a diameter of about 16.5 inches and is about 8 inches tall. Each sectional dish is 1.25 inches tall, 8.75 inches wide at the wider side and 4.125 inches wide at the narrower sectionand about 4.5 inches deep. The plate dish has a diameter of 8.5 inches and is about 4.25 inches tall. Each piece is first quality and marked with the under glaze blue crossed swords mark as well as the usual other marks as shown. A really fun and unusual set.
