Description 19th Century Meissen Porcelain 'Water' Elemental Ewer
German, c. 1880
Height 64cm, width 36cm, depth 26cm

This finely crafted Meissen porcelain ewer is superbly designed to be representative of 'Water'. Designed after the famous model by sculptor J.J. Kaendler, this was created as part of a series of elemental ewers, representing fire, earth, air and water.

The base and handle are moulded to appear like seaweed, bright green in colour, with spouting pink dolphins. The body of the ewer is adorned with an incredibly detailed naval scene, with galloping horses crashing out of the sea, a mermaid and Neptune perched on a shell. The neck is designed to resemble a conch shell, with gilt detailing and a single cherub perched at the very top.

The ewer is marked to the underside with Meissen blue crossed swords and the number 26 in gold.

Artist/maker: Meissen Porcelain Manufactory (German, founded 1710)
