Magnificent Pair of Meissen Snowball Porcelain Covered Vases, Marked

Item Number: 154MP

Magnificent pair of Meissen covered vases, decorated with snowball porcelain effect, with winged parrot on top of each cover, above branches, leaves, and berries. The entire surface of each vase is decorated with snowball porcelain effect. Different three dimensional colorful birds and leafy branches are set around each vase, the birds seeming to have landed on the vase. The type of vase is described as ‘Schneeballen’ or snow ball vase. They were first made in 1741. Each vase has hundreds of flower, 'snowballs’ which were hand modeled and individually applied. This style was also particularly astonishing given that firing porcelain was incredibly difficult.
