A rare early saucer made by Meissen in about 1735. It is hand painted with the very old blue when Meissen still had issues with the color and the paste has a relief design to it.The old blue had an odd sheen to it when held at the right angle to the light which I tried to show in a picture. The pattern is called the straw flower design and it was very popular back in the day and still is to this day. The saucer is in perfect condition with a tiny bit of wear to the clear glaze in two small spots from stacking which can only be seen when held at the right angle. A small glazed over chip to the foot ring as well as some stray blue to the underside. Marked with the straight blue crossed swords underneath with a dot between the bottom ends (I know this is known for the 1765 period but it was also used early once in a while).
There is also another blue mark that almost touches the swords which is probably a painters mark and an impressed number 62. The saucer is 1.125 inches tall and has a diameter of 4.75 inches. 18th century German Germany antique Unterteller Strohblume blue & white.
