Public banquet in the form of a melon - Schrezheim, around 1770




Christian Eduard Franke-Landwers Christoph Freiherr von Seckendorff


Schrezheim, around 1770

Faience with naturalistic painting in grouch colours.

The box with lid in the form of a ripped melon with laid-on leaves and lying in a white blade shell, probably rather served decorative issues of a table and the representation of the noble host in front of his guests than the storage of dishes.

Astonishing his guests at table with surprises was a fixed component of a great feast at court, especially replications of porcelain of Faience were popular, therefore.

Length 28 cm.
