Helena was the successor to the company started by her father, originally under the name of L. Meyer & Sohne in 1843....The Crown Dresden is porcelain produced by outside decorator Helena Wolfsohn, in Dresden in the 1870s.. Wolfsohn is not a porcelain factory but a painting studio that decorated externally bought porcelain... She originally used the Meissen Royal factory mark on her products, in particular a variation of the Meissen AR (Augustus Rex) mark.. Following a lawsuit brought by the Meissen company, she was forced to drop the AR mark and started to use a crown with D scripted beneath.. Her work was typically decorated with pastoral scenes, inspired by the French artist Antoine Watteau and interspersed with panels of flowers.... This gorgeous piece is prior to the lawsuit. This lovely porcelain piece is made of a high grade of porcelain, beautifully decorated late 19th century porcelain in white, decorated with a romantic pastoral hand painted in fine detail panels on both the lobed saucer and cup.. The opposite panels are decorated with gold and pink rose buds..
The detail work is very fine and the hands of a master painter shows their highest artistic quality on this very fine piece - worthy for display. Bottom Back stamp marked in blue on the bottom the cursive "AR" mark - the AR monogram (Meissen's Augustus Rex) on early wares is often under the glaze where the mark was applied prior to the firing..
The display cup is 3 inches by 2 inches top lobed shaped rim with a 1.5 inch base diameter... The display quatrefoil lobed saucer is 5 3/8 inches by 4 7/8 inches top rim with a 2 7/8 inch base diameter.. Light signs of previous use should be expected consistent with age and ownership... Very nice, antique and pre-owned condition with 90% gold intact - free of chips, cracks, hairlines, possibly some fleabites along the rims of the saucer and cup..... Any other imperfections would be craft related only.
