the raised edge painted a deep brownish red fashionable in the red anchor period (1752-56);

unmarked; three spur marks verso

 

*The molding on this dish, described as “Gotzkowsky” manner, derives its name from Johann Ernst Gotzkowsky

(b. 1710), a Berlin entrepreneur, who ordered a Meissen service so molded about 1743-44. 

It was probably modeled by Johann Friedrich Eberlein (1696-1749) and first appears on Meissen porcelain in 1741.  The Meissen models were round with further molding and shaping to the rims.

A notable Meissen service with this molding is the St. Andrew Service” (1744),

given by Augustus III to Elizabeth I of Russia, consisting of some 440 pieces,

augmented by 130 sculptural figures for dessert.
