By 1710, the first very small numbers of pieces of porcelain were on the market. Over the next decade, production gradually increased, but examples from this period are sensationally rare.
Here's another early Meissen one with a story to tell.
This bowl is once again early, being the Böttger porcelain from around 1720. However, the decoration is not. While the factory did produce delightful gold chinoiserie silhouettes, these are different. They are in fact the work of a decorating workshop who bought the porcelain in the white and produced their own distinct style of chinoiseries - the Augsburg workshop of Bartholomäus Seuter, circa 1725.
