Antique Meissen Porcelain

Meissen Porcelain – New York City Meissen Dealer

Meissen is an area in Germany that has been making porcelain since the early 18th century. Meissen is known for making beautiful dishes and figurines. Many believe Meissen porcelain to be the best in the world because of the great detail that goes into each piece. Meissen and Sevres were 2 highly competitive porcelain companies in the 18th and 19th centuries. Some of the finest artists in France worked for Sevres and the finest artists in Germany worked for Meissen. As a result, some of the most spectacular porcelain specimens were created.

The most popular antique Meissen porcelain dishes are painted blue and white. The name for the pattern of these dishes is “Blue Onion”. In the 1980s and 1990s the “Blue Onion” pattern was extremely popular. However, in todays todays antique market dishes in general have not maintained their values.

The antique Meissen figures are usually painted in vibrant colors like orange, green, blue and pink. Subjects of figures include cherubs, men, woman, children, animals and more. The value depends a lot on size, age and condition. Meissen is very delicate and due to its age is often damaged. However, the older pieces are so rare, even the damaged items still have value. The most common mark for Meissen is the crossed swords. However, many German porcelain companies have similar marks so be careful to check closely when evaluating your Meissen pieces.
