Dresden Carl Thieme Plates

We’re offering a pair of Dresden Carl Thieme Plates with Handles.  They are in the design of a leaf with a Hand painted Floral Bouquet in colors of pink, blue, orange with green leaves in the center. Swags of cranberry and gold surround the bouquet and the edge is decorated with blue white and gold trim.  The outer rim is painted gold.

They are in a Rococo Revival Style.  Rococo comes from the French word “rocaille” meaning rock work or grotto work, and refers to the artificial grottoes used in French gardens that were decorated with irregularly shaped stones and seashells.  Decorators in Dresden during the 19th century were the first to apply this style to porcelain, a colorful technique characterized by elaborate fanciful design and a profusion of foliage, flowers, fruits, shells and scrolls.  The Dresden style was also characterized by a profusion of intricate gold gilding that contrasted beautifully with the translucent whiteness of the porcelain.  The result was a literal feast for the eyes, a veritable banquet of brilliant colors and natural forms that many artists continued to imitate.

Markings on Back:  Blue Saxonian Porcelain Factory, Dresden, Germany, circa 1900. Marks: SP (conjoined) (over) DRESDEN.

Perfect and beautiful describe the condition of this pair of plates.  They are without and chips, scratches, crazing or repairs.  Measurements are as follows:  5 ¾” Long x 4 ½” wide x 1 3/8″ High to top of handle.
