This enchanting pair of Meissen sconces exhibits the finest artistry for which this famed porcelain firm is known. Decorated with Meissen’s hallmark hand-painted intricacy, with delicate applied flowers and garland-bearing cherubs, the sconces are lit by three candle arms, which seem to sprout directly from their bases.

Founded in the early 18th century, the 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.

Features the Meissen crossed swords mark in blue underglaze.

Circa 1820
