Product description

Meissen "Ming Dragon" vintage porcelain ashtray - red pattern with gold rim
An original vintage Meissen porcelain ashtray, finely hand-decorated in the "Ming Dragon" pattern (first produced in 1740 and still in production; this example probably dates from the middle years of the 20th century) in dark red and orange-red with gold rim. The underside bears the famous Meissen "crossed swords" mark (plus a separate dot) in underglaze blue, together with the impressed number "1234", the incised number "1415", and another number finely hand-painted in red.
Although this genuine vintage piece shows slight signs of age (see condition description below) together with minor manufacturing imperfections / inconsistencies in the glaze, it remains in very good condition overall, and would make a lovely addition to a tobacciana collection or a display of vintage Meissen porcelain - or a nice finishing touch to a vintage-inspired interior.
