Meissen Porcelain Kakiemon
That's gorgeous, Oralei! Congrats! :-)

Thanks Julia, one tends to appreciate Meissen more, when you start researching it's history and learning more about Meissen. I'm happy to have Nicholas here to guide us. Here is another one with a different pattern. This one is suppose to be circa 1740. blue crossed swords mark, Pressnummer 16
Painted with birds in flight and perched among pine, prunus and bamboo issuing from pierced rockwork, the shaped border with scattered flower-sprays within a brown line rim (some minor wear to enamels of well)
9¼ in. (23.5 cm.) wide
Well, Oralei this is a lovely piece. The swords suggest a manufacturing date between 1860-1924. The decoration itself originated a long time ago. It goes back to the early days of the Manufactory, and was used in one form or another since 1721. Curiously it is called not "yellow tiger" as one might expect but "gelber Loewe" meaning yellow lion! The decoration is still in use today.

Thank you Nicholas and Vicki. Not sure how I missed these last two messages. 

Beautiful! Nice find!
