Meissen scalloped bowl.

19th century, German.

5 1/8inches accross at widest point.

Nearly 2inches high.

5 deep lobes, bordered by rich gilt scrolling pattern.

The inside of the bowl is painted with a marvellous scene of a mother, her son and their dog in a rich parkland or garden.

Pillars with pot plants indicate that this is quite a formal garden, as do the tall, elegant trees in the background.

The mother is very richly dressed in aristocratic attire of the 18th century.

A puce silk skirt, rich red silk sleeves and bodice emerge from under a deep blue velvet jacket and complex curled hairdo under a feathered cap.

The blond-curled little boy points to something in the distance, while the little dog prances off in that direction.

Crossed swords under the glaze.

Very good condition with no chips/cracks of any sort.
