A rare Meissen porcelain bowl from the Christie-Miller Service

Flaring vessel on a scalloped stand. Painted with figures in a water landscape, presumably after a motif by Jacopo Amigoni. Below it further landscapes and merchant scenes in puce camaieau within four quatrefoil reserves. The base of the vessel with a large bouquet of tulips. Blue crossed swords mark, pressnummer 21. Restored over a U-shaped breakage, small retouched chip to edge of the rim. D 26 cm.
Circa 1740, decor attributed to Johann George Heintze.

61 items from this particularly finely decorated dinner service from the estate of S.R. Christie-Miller were sold by Sotheby's in London on 7th July 1970. The service is said to have been in the possession of the Christie-Miller family for 130 years. The extraordinarily fine paintings can be attributed to the leading landscape painters working for Meissen at the time, Johann George Heintze, Christian Friedrich Herold and Bonaventura Gottlieb Häuer.
