Meissen pieces up for auction

Have your say

An impressive selection of 19th Century Meissen pieces are to go under the hammer at Bonhams, Edinburgh.

The sale, on Wednesday, May 16, includes a pair of late 19th Century Meissen figural candlesticks, estimated at £700-1000. Each depicts different seasons – one represents spring and summer, featuring putti holding baskets of flowers, and the other represents autumn and winter, where a putto holds a glass of wine.

Meissen porcelainis marked with variations of a blue crossed swords mark, which was introduced in 1720.
