Antique Meissen "Blue onion" bowl in hand-painted porcelain. Early 20th century.
Antique Meissen "Blue onion" bowl in hand-painted porcelain. Early 20th century. Measures: 11 x 3.5 cm. The Meissen "onion" pattern was originally named the "bulb" pattern. While modeled closely after a pattern first produced by Chinese porcelain painters, which featured pomegranates unfamiliar in Saxony, the plates and bowls produced in the Meissen factory in 1740 adopted a feel that was distinctly their own. More than 200 pieces on stock, complete lunch & dinner service for 24 p. serving pieces, coffee service and much more. Stamped. 2nd factory quality.
