By Meissen Porcelain Manufactory (German, founded 1710)
This superb Meissen porcelain ewer, representative of 'water', was created as part of a series of four ewers, each symbolising one of the four elements.
This fine porcelain ewer by Meissen is after the famous model by J. J. Kaendler—one of the four Meissen ‘elements’ ewers, the present one symbolic of water. The ewer is adorned in the round with a relief naval scene, the scene flanked by figures of Neptune, a mermaid, and galloping horses. The circular flaring base is decorated with spouting dolphins amongst bulrushes, while the neck is wrought to resemble a conch, a single cherub perched atop.
The underside with under glaze blue crossed swords mark for Meissen, as well as the number ‘26’ in gold pigment.
