Meissen Porcelain Figure of Girl on Barrel Making Wine with Lace Clothing c.1910

Meissen Beautiful Figure of a Girl with Grapes on Barrel – Hand Painted Dress and ‘Lace’ decoration.

“Girl Making Wine”   –    circa 1910.

A lovely little Meissen figure of a girl with beautiful features and exquisite painted dress with delicate porcelain trimming to look like lace.  The girl holds grapes in one hand while holding her skirt in the other.  At her feet are a bunches of grapes and leaves. The base is in the shape of the top of a wine barrel. The girl – in bare feet –  is about to start stomping the grapes to make wine.

The lace is most exquisite on the front bodice of her dress.

I have seen this figure without the Lace decoration on her dress.  The lace makes this so much more beautiful and fine.

A FINE PAIR of COPELAND SPODE PLATES w. FLORAL DECORATION, 1885

$250.00

This is a lovely pair of decorative plates with incised, scalloped edges rims decorated with gilt overlay. 

The rich cobalt blue, cream and white rims feature four white contrasting ovals decorated with floral sprigs and framed in gilt. There are stylized gilt sprigs and sprays overlaid against the cobalt blue. 

The impressed centres are beautifully trimmed with a wide gilt band surrounded by a frame of curlicues, leaves and flowers.

The centres are then individually decorated with beautiful sprays of flowers: purple anemone surrounded by springs of forget-me-nots on one and a spray of orchids and bell-shaped flowers on t he other. Both floral centres stand out against white backgrounds.

The plates are noteworthy for both the fineness of their painting and the depth and vividness of their colour.

Spode was founded at Stoke, England in 1776 and remained in production there until 2008. The factory was noted for the fine quality of its china.

These two Victorian era plates are an excellent example of Spode’s quality and beauty and would make a very pretty addition to a collection of high-quality English china.
