The gold leaf that runs through the dragon and hoo bird designs are intact. There No chips or nics in the porcelain. The factory was established in 1710. Around 1730, Augustus the Strong, Elector of Saxony and King of Poland commissioned Meissen to create the first dinner service for the Dresden Court.This service was exclusive to that house until 1918. The pattern depicts two long-bodied dragons with golden scales fly around a pair of fighting Hoo birds, symbolizing heaven and earth, as well as the almighty power of the Emperor and Empress. Each piece of Meissen is hand-painted to order in the centuries old tradition of exquisite German craftsmanship. Among the many things dragons symbolize in Chinese mythology are supernatural wisdom, the spirit of change, the rhythm of nature, and the doctrine of emergence. Each Meissen Ming Dragon piece has a scalloped edge, developed in 1740.
Only genuine Meissen porcelain has retained its value over time. Witness the extraordinary prices, which Meissen porcelain pieces habitually fetch at international auctions. Part of this value derives from the fact that no two pieces are ever exactly alike as each piece bears the imprint of the individual artists hand, a distinction almost beyond price. Ever since Meissen began manufacturing porcelain, quality has been the foremost priority. Meissen is committed to superb artistry in handcrafting and to finding a perfect balance between tradition and innovation.Im easy to work with but I do have some basic and reasonable terms and conditions.
