Vintage 1930s Meissen Porcelain Charger Bowl Dish Hand Painted Polychrome Flowers with Gold


Brand Etsy

This is a Meissen porcelain charger bowl that is decorated with hand painted flowers and generously trimmed in gold. This charger is meant as a decorative piece rather than a functional one - much too pretty to fill with food. The underside is marked with the Meissen crossed swords backstamp that was used from 1934 until 1945. There are two scratches through the mark, which means that it has been designed a seconds quality. Meissen was very exacting about their production, so much so that often it is impossible to see what is wrong with the item. Ive spent about 20 minutes looking at every inch of this piece and I couldnt tell you why it is a seconds quality - it displays beautifully. It measures 11 3/4 in diameter with a height of about 2. It is in excellent condition - please view the photos. Despite being a seconds quality, this is a beautiful Meissen porcelain charger - striking display piece!
