10x25 cm, 640 g
The decoration on this consummate sauce-boat, which draws on a shape conceived in 1735 by Johann Joachim Kaendler, shows the richness of detail in true-to-life painting, inspired by the artistic illustrations of Maria Sybilla Merian (1647-1717). The various fruits portrayed, harmonise to perfection with insects and flowers. The inside of the boat shows a colourful congregation of maize, paprika, aquilegia and flat-head beetles framed by tiny hazelnuts and rose hips, whilst its exterior is adorned by butterflies and insects.
