Two rare Meissen porcelain bowls from the dinner service made for Count von Seydewitz

Decorated in the centre with the imperial count's arms supported by two lions on a scrollwork bracket. Blue crossed swords mark, dreher's mark Z, presumably that of Carl Gottlob Wolff sen. and two dots mark of Johann Martin Kittel jun. Some scratches and glaze wear. D 24.8 cm.
Ca. 1739, probably decorated in 1743.

Provenance

Private collection, Palatinate.

Literature

Cf. cat. Sammlung Hoffmeister, vol. II, Hamburg 1999, no. 348, for another smaller dish from this service. Since August Friedrich von Seydewitz (1696 - 1775) was first raised to the rank of imperial count and thus permitted to use this heraldry in 1743, Dieter Hoffmeister proposed that the majority of items from the service should be dated later, even though they bear earlier dreher's numbers (p. 610).
