Description : Thank you for considering this stack of the always sought of Meissen Blue Onion pattern dinner dishes. The stack of dishes includes 14 dishes.
Each dish measures 10 inches in diameter. The history of the Onion Pattern began with the search of a special blue color to emphasize the unprecedented whiteness of Meissen's porcelain. After numerous tests, they combined cobalt and oxygen to create a blue that was extremely heat-resistant. Inspired by East Asian patterns, which were predominantly blue at the time, Meissens radiant blue Onion Pattern was created from 1731 and would go on to become famous around the world. The onions in the pattern are not actually onions, but rather peaches and melons on the rims, and bamboo stalks and delicate chrysanthemum blossoms in the center.In 2004, Onion was modernized to include a chrysanthemum winding along the plate's rim. The vined bamboo shoot with delicate blossoms, along with the original pattern's double leaft have remained, while the fruits have disappeared altogether.
This new pattern is a lighter, breezier offshoot of the 1731 original, allowing the porcelain to shine. The Crossed Swords have been a component of the onion pattern since 1888. Set in the foot of the bamboo stalks, the swords attest to the pieces authenticity and guarantee Meissens exceptional porcelain quality and craftsmanship Founded in 1710 by King Augustus the Strong, Meissen is the oldest porcelain manufactory in Europe and enjoys worldwide acclaim for its exceptional craftsmanship. Meissen and its crossed swords insignia are synonymous with the highest quality porcelain; every Meissen piece is entirely crafted in-house in the state of Saxony (Germany).
