This rare Meissen porcelain wall charger with shallow well and graduated rim is painted with two types of Oleander flowers. The distinctive style of J.E. Braunsdorf’s floral work being softly executed to create this most elegant design.

Julius Eduard Braunsdorf (1841–1922) a renowned specialist in watercolours and still life flower painting was initially employed at the Meissen factory in 1858 as an apprentice and spent time at the Dresden Academy of Fine Arts.  At the Meissen factory he inspired other artists and was granted a professorial title in 1900, retiring from Meissen in 1906.

Monumental objects such as this are rare and his work captures the essence of the Jugendstil or Art Nouveau period.  In 1903 his botanical illustrations were published in the prestigious “Journal des Roses” (A variety of Tea Rose, the “Konigin Carola” or Queen Carol rose after Queen Caroline Friederike Franziska Stephanie Cecile Amelie of Saxony).

This Meissen porcelain wall charger circa 1890 would have likely been created for exhibition or special commission.

Most recently, Meissen have chosen to recreate this masterpiece from their archived illustrations and produced a flat wall plaque for their “Masterworks” series in 2022.  The limited edition of ten, were produced and sold out within months. 

We are delighted to offer this original, bearing the Meissen blue crossed swords mark with pronounced pommels (for the period) and is guaranteed for authenticity under the BADA code of ethics.

Circa 1890.
