    Acquired in 1984

    Both this and the following lot are rare variations of patterns derived from Japanese Kakiemon designs. They demonstrate how Meissen developed their own versions of Asian patterns; it is interesting to note that the colouring of the tigers is reversed. A similarly decorated dish - formerly in the Baron von Born Collection, Budapest - is in the Arnhold Collection, New York (Cassidy-Geiger 2008, no. 244).
