MEISSEN BOUILLON & COVER CIRCA 1730
This bouillon cup was purchased in Palm Beach in 1954 from Schmidt & Co. It dates cr. 1730. The two handled cup has a Harbor Scene on each side in a cartouch of gold and picked out in lavender only. The cover also has two fine harbor scenes without cartouch. The cover has a very fine gold C scroll decoration around the outside of the scenes and as a finial it has a sea serpent in brown, purple and a red mouth. The stand is missing. Each piece has the gold mark 2. The cup has the crossed swords mark, also.
