Swan Service w/Kakiemon Flowers Plate

This is a plate from the famous Swan Service made by Meissen in the 20th century. Originally this service was made between 1737 and 1741 by Johann Joachim Kaendler and Johann Friedrich Eberlein. Made for Heinrich, Count von Brühl, the factory director, it was composed of 2,200 pieces modeled and painted in the Rococo style with such aquatic motifs as swans and water nymphs. It is regarded as the single finest table service ever made in porcelain. This plate here is the blanc de Chine version with the added polychrome Kakiemon flowers and gold trim along the rim. A nice combination that looks stunning! The relief details in the center include swans and birds with the water underneath them and some greenery to the sides. The piece is in perfect condition. The plate is marked with the under glaze blue crossed swords mark as well as the usual impressed numbers of the period and some red numbers along the foot ring as shown. The piece is 1.125 inches tall and 7.875 inches in diameter. Please email me for more information or other pictures.

Price is $599
