Founded in the early 18th century, the legendary Meissen factory was the first European ceramics manufacturer to produce "true" or hard-paste porcelain and remained unrivaled in terms of innovation and beauty for decades. Though the formula for hard-paste porcelain gradually found its way across Europe, the Royal Manufactory at Meissen continued to produce some of the finest porcelain works the world had ever seen. Creating such intricate items as this service was a painstaking process, and the enormous decorative detail is an indication of the incredible level of skill attained by Meissen artists.

Each piece is stamped with Meissen crossed swords and asterisks in blue underglaze, with various impressed numerals.

Circa 1820
