Description
Meißen - 1718 Bottger porcelain teabowl (1) - Porcelain
Germany - First half 18th century

An early circa 1718 Botteger porcelain teabowl from the first period of the Meissen factory. The Chinoiserie decoration is not by Meissen but probably decorated in Augsburg perhaps in the Seuter Workshop. At this time this was quite normal because the Meissen factory did not have the technical expertise nor manufacturing ability to produce “gold” decoration. The decoration is red into the glaze therefore is subject to wear as the years pass.
There is a small firing fault to the rim and some kiln dirt as was usual for this period.
