Mustard Dish with Armorial

This is an interesting lidded mustard dish made by Meissen in the late 19th or early 20th century. The main body is nicely hand painted with polychrome flowers - one larger arrangement to the front as well as another one to the back with a small single flower to one side and two more smaller flowers to the top edge which has a basket weave pattern to it but the interesting part is an armorial of a golden rampant lion with a crown above it. I am sure it is for some sort of English royalty but could not figure out anything specific. The armorial is really detailed as is the crown so maybe someone else that knows more about this sort of thing could help. I would certainly appreciate it! The attached saucer part has the same basket weave design to the rim with three flowers to it and the kid has the same design with two small flower and a nice yellow rose floral finial. The suacer dish is marked underneath with the under glaze blue crossed swords mark as well as the usual impressed numbers of the period. First quality. The saucer dish and main body are in perfect condition with the finial on the lid having some damage to the petals mainly to one side so it still displays perfectly. The piece is about 4 inches tall with the saucer part having a diameter of 5.75 inches. Please email me for more information or other pictures.

Price is $599
