Crafted with the exquisite detail for which Meissen is renowned, the lights depict Hebe and Ganymede, the two cupbearers to the gods, standing beneath palm trees laden with grape vines. The chief of the Olympian gods, Zeus, takes the form of a golden eagle on each of these magnificent lights. 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. An almost identical pair is featured in Meissen: Collector's Catalogue by Laurence Mitchell. Features blue crossed swords marks in blue under glaze and incised Model No. K 49-50, circa 1890. Measures: 14 3/4" high. less
