Meissen lobed teabowl, c.1730, decorated in the Kakiemon style in coloured enamels with chrysanthemum flowers and leaves, the interior with a small red floral spray, the base with crossed sword mark in underglaze blue and incised Dresden inventory number N3362W.
Height: 7.3cm. (2 7/8in.); diameter: 9.3cm. (3 5/8in.)
An identical teabowl with Dresden inventory number N455W can still be found in the Royal Collection at Dresden (PE5057)
Incised 'palace numbers' correspond with six inventory books compiled between 1721 and 1779 to catalogue the enormous porcelain collection of Augusts the Strong. Such historical documentation provides an invaluable insight into his collecting habits, as well as indicating a direct link between marked pieces such as this and the royal collection he amassed.
