Limited Masterworks 2020 Déjeuner with "Birds in Flight"
Order No.: 936A84-S1801-1
The clear design language of the Dejeuner by master modeller Emil Paul Börner from 1930 forms the perfect projection surface for a hand-painted and limited edition reinterpretation of the classic. The "Birds in Flight" dinner service shows various species of birds in flight - a first in Meissen's decorative language, created by Otto Drögsler. With wings spread wide, a hand-painted animated dove lands on the teapot, jay and marsh tit on plates and the sugar bowl is decorated by the magnificent jay, an exotic bird from Asia. The painting of the dejeuner is particularly elaborate with stuccoed clouds and rich detail. Also in its colorfulness, the dinner service with its union of delicate blue, violet tones with soft pastel yellow makes a harmonious ensemble. As a limited edition and hand-painted reissue, the Dejeuner remains true to the basic principles of the manufactory and combines tradition with modernity, centuries-old craftsmanship with a flair for change. With a limited number of pieces available, the dinner service describes a unique experience of Meissen porcelain history.
