This monumental Meissen porcelain basket centerpiece is a joyous celebration of the Rococo style. Model by Ernst August Leuteritz, this stunning piece evokes pastoral beauty with its extraordinarily ornate pedestal, comprised of a courting couple dancing around a flower-laden palm tree. Rococo accents are masterfully placed throughout this piece, from the exuberant shell decorations on the basket and base to the proliferation of colorful hand-painted and applied flowers. At once bold and delicate, this piece epitomizes the Meissen artistic aesthetic. Leuteritz (1818 - 1893) was a designer and later Director of the modeling Department at Meissen from 1836-1886, and known for re-working many of the styles from the 18th century. This magnificent piece is one of his triumphs. An almost identical piece is featured in Meissen: Collector's Catalogue by Laurence Mitchell.
