Meissen Type 18th Century European Porcelain Jug / Pot

Possibly German Ca. 1760

A baluster form jug with all over molded basket weave pattern, quatrefoil vignettes of couples in a landscape, scattered floral sprigs, lots of gold highlighting and the lid with a flower form knopf. This resembles Meissen type production and many factories that copied Meissen’s style. It is unmarked. It probably dates from the 3rd quarter of the 18th Century.

Price

$950

Condition

Very good ++ condition. There is a minor amount of rubbing to the gold and small professional chip repairs to the edge of the lid and spout.

Measurements

8 3/4" high, 6 3/8" long, 4 1/8" wide

W. Kimball Coin Silver Soup Spoons Ca. 1840

Six W. Kimball Coin Silver soup spoons made around 1840. The maker is one of the few I have not been able to definitively locate a record for. The family I purchased them from had 19th century roots in Connecticut. The six of these weigh a total of 8.2 Troy oz.
