69 cm (27 inc)
Description
This extremely large and important Meissen porcelain vase is exquisitely painted demonstrating Meissen's finest workmanship and is decorated upon a cobalt blue ground, heightened by detailed gilded scrollwork and embellishments.

The finely painted panels are after a painting by Caspar Netscher(1639–1684)and the other by Gabriel Metsu (1629–1667) which depicts the artist with his wife Isabella
DeWolff in a tavern. Painted in 1661 it resides in the Gemaldegalerie, Dresden (inventory no. 1732) along with Netscher’s painting (inventory no. 1348).

Vases of this nature would have been made for Exhibition or special commission only, as the work involved would have been considerable without guarantee of survival in the firing process. It is a masterpiece of porcelain manufacture and a true work of art. The
shape of this vase was created by Ernst August Leuteritz (1818–1893). Model number F183.
