Lot 856Rare teapot with house painting
of Franz Ferdinand Mayer-Preßnitz
Böttger Porcelain. Ball-shaped body, side ears, a handle and a conical tube spout. Bulging, of a sheet of frieze umzogener cover with plastic washer knob. On both sides of the wall relief, plastic-like, Asian blossoms, branches between the circumferential water-landscape with mythological scenic representation of musical sea creatures. Polychrome painting in red, brown, Yellow and grey-green, probably from Franz Ferdinand Mayer of Preßnitz. Sword brand. H. 12,5 cm.
Since the Meissen manufactory ceded only unpainted porcelain, are often early harnesses from Böttger porcelain, with the later running house paintings to be found. The Bohemian house painter F. F. Mayer-Preßnitz decorated mostly branches of older, often with raised flowers and leaf friezes lined porcelain, first and foremost with mythological representations.
