Modeled as a recumbent youth holding a large flower-encrusted oval-shaped bowl, the interior enriched with hand painted decoration of flowers and insects, raised on a gilt enriched cartouche-shaped rocaille base. Markings: hand painted crossed blue swords underglaze mark (1st quality); hand incised "2863"; impressed "58"; hand painted iron red "42" (or "72"); old label of a previous antiques retailer "Drew's Antiques Omaha". See my other auctions for the companion female sweetmeat dish. Typical scattered losses to the applied leaves and flowers on the bowl.
On the back of the figure there is an old professional restoration to the figure's bottom right coat flap (a triangular section of this coat flap appears to have been somewhat cleanly broken off and reattached with a small amount of fill and inpainting along the break line). There is some scattered minor roughness along the bottom edge of the base (tiny nicks/flakes/fritting). Consult photos for all of this. Otherwise this dish is in excellent all original condition with no damages and no significant wear.
I detect no other restorations / touch ups. No other nicks, flakes, chips, losses.
No significant scratches or rubs. No significant wear to the paint. The item "12 1/2 MEISSEN 2863 German Porcelain Sweetmeat Dish Bowl Figurine-Male" is in sale since Monday, October 14, 2019.
