Blanketed in a multitude of floral bouquets, this monumental porcelain chandelier was crafted by Meissen. A marvelous example of the firm's exceptional artistry, this enchanting 12-light fixture exemplifies the Rococo style. Its lush garden motif calls to mind an over-flowing basket of flowers, as blooms trail along the body and arms while 13 floral bouquets dangle from the branches and center of the chandelier. Each branch is surmounted by a darling putto, with maidens perched above and tossing flowers below them. Meissen porcelain has been coveted by royalty since this legendary manufactory began production in 1710. By the middle of the 19th century, large pieces such as this chandelier had found an audience among royals and aristocrats around the world.

Founded in the early 18th century, the Meissen factory 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 pieces the world had ever seen. Exquisitely crafted figures of all sizes, along with dinner services and artistic objects were all part of the Meissen repertoire.
