The third European factory to lead the market was that of Vienna, which in 1744 became the property of the Empire. Meissen procelain is perhaps most noted for its allegorical figures and those of everyday people in period costume and is without a doubt the most decorative of the three factories. Often heavily adorned with floral decoration, Meissen pieces imbue a fresh spontaneity and fluidity of motion along with an incredible technical excellence.
Figures, urns, candelabra, mirrors etc. Reflect a playful elegance and charm that has made them popular for more than 200 years. Authentic Meissen is marked with the traditional blue crossed swords which, despite minor variations over the years, has remained consistent.Learning these subtle variations, however, could prove invaluable not only in dating pieces but in recognizing fakes and distinguishing the mark from similar ones used by factories hoping to confuse the public. Meissen porcelain patterns have been copied by many other china makers all over the world like Royal Copenhagen, Dresden, Herend, and many other makers. The glaze on Meissen porcelain maintains its quality over time. This is why old Meissen looks so new and keeps its good condition.
Other porcelains graze and have many more problems staying in good condition. Gilding, porcelain, underglaze hand painting. The Candles are in excellent, undamaged condition.
