Item Details
Description
A rare pair of Meissen bottles, circa 1725
Of simple pear shape on small, slightly domed bases, both finely painted in black monochrome with continuous Kauffahrtei scenes of merchants and their wares by a quayside, one with two figures unloading a small sailing vessel beside a ruined tower, elaborate borders of gilt scrollwork around the bases and below the narrow necks, 11.8cm and 12cm high (covers missing) (2)
Footnotes:
This form is of great rarity: four such bottles painted with continuous chinoiserie scenes were in the historic collections of the Margraves and Grand Dukes of Baden, now Schloss Favorite (U. Grimm/W. Wiese, Was bleibt (1996), p.65); two bottles decorated in Augsburg with gilt chinoiserie vignettes enclosed by strap- and scrollwork are in the Arnhold Collection, New York (M. Cassidy-Geiger, The Arnhold Collection of Meissen Porcelain 1710-50 (2008), no. 280).
Condition
The covers are missing. There is very minor rubbing to the gilt borders on both and a some tiny scattered scratches to the black enamel of the continuous scenes around the bottles (some faintly visible in cat. illustration).
Otherwise generally in very good condition.
