A rare & fascinating early piece of Meissen is also rather ‘loud’! This is an early Meissen octagonal dish, painted to the centre with a chinoiserie in the manner of J.G.Höroldt with a noisy scene of bell-ringers. a child to one side beating a gong, with various insects & birds flying overhead, within a double red line circle, a band of gilt scrollwork to the rim, the reverse with crisply moulded acanthus leaves picked out in gold.
