From the dinner service for Grand Duke Georg of Mecklenburg-Strelitz after his marriage to Princess Mary of Hesse-Kassel
Marked Neustrelitz 1836, master’s mark Gottfried Christian David Petschler and Fidei-Commis stamp (“FIDC”).
On a round base, four fully plastic, naturalistically chased rams each carry the bowl decorated with godrons. The lid, engraved with the coat of arms of the Grand Dukes of Mecklenburg, is crowned by a reclining lion.
In addition to several terrines with slightly varying décor, elegant silver dinner plates and spice dishes were also part of this extensive set for a festive table, which was commissioned by several goldsmiths. The Neustrelitz goldsmith Petschler (1794-1879, 1816 master craftsman) has also made other valuable orders for the silver collection of the Grand Duke of Mecklenburg.
