Meissen, around 1740. Flower painting with insects according to botanical models (so called 'Holzschnittblumen'). 14 pieces for 8 persons: coffee pot (h. 18,5 cm), tea pot (h. 10 cm), 8 cups (1 rest., 1 with small rep.) with 10 saucers, tea box (h. 10 cm, without lid) and sugar box with lid knob in shape of a hare. Crossed swords mark. Partly min. chip. - This stylised kind of flower painting was introduced around 1730. Flower prints were copied after botanical editions, adopting their somehow stiff character and shadowed rims (therefore also called 'ombrierte Malerei'). See: Hamburger Museum f. Kunst u. Gewerbe, Meissener Porzellan d. 18. Jhs., Katalog der Slg. Hoffmeister, Bd. I, Hamburg 1999, p. 336f. Also: Meißener Porzellan des 18. Jhs. in Schloss Lustheim, p. 290.
