Swan Service Platter Oval, large

Order No.: 000001-05308-1
4x34 cm, 1580 g
The large oval "Platter" is part of Johann Joachim Kaendler's "Swan service", which comprises more than 2,200 parts. In the plate mirror of a shell, the name-giving swans float through reeds. The opulent sculptural details of the porcelain bring baroque elegance to the modern table. The large oval "Plate" is dishwasher safe as well as microwave safe. It took five years for the "Swan service", the opus magnum of German baroque art, to be completed. The central motif of this impressive piece of porcelain history is water, which is found in the fine wave relief of porcelain. The filigree contours of the relief-adorned surfaces break up the light, lending the detailed figurines the look of near transparency with porcelain's characteristic shimmer. MEISSEN - a very special gift.
