Historical Meissen Onion Plates - S/2


Stunning set of 2 - Meissen Onion Pattern Dessert Plates available - Origin a European Estate. 

An historical pattern from the storied Porcelain atelier, Meissen, who since its founding in 1710, has stood for the highest-quality porcelain and remarkable painting techniques. Represented around the world with the insignia of two Crossed Swords in cobalt blue, the quality of Meissen porcelain has its beginnings in the manufactory’s own mine near the city of Meissen, where the purest kaolin is sourced day after day. This white clay is the key to the striking radiance of Meissen porcelain.

The in-house training to become a painter or shaper lasts over three years, while achieving the level of Master takes many years more. A piece created for the “Limited Masterworks” collection requires months of elaborate handicraft, learned over decades of exacting training.

Very good condition - these porcelain dessert plates are vintage and have been used. Minor wear only. Marked with Meissen crossed sword on bottom. All historical pieces are sold as is and are final sale.

Slight variations in diameter as made, ranging from 8.325 inches to 8.5 inches.

Sold as a set of 2 - 3 Sets available
