Description:

Meissen plate decorated in the kakiemon style and recorded in the Meissen archives as 'Teller mit gelbem Löwen'. This is translated nowadays  as the yellow tiger since it does in fact resemble a tiger more than a lion. The moulded pattern on the plate was designed by Eberlein in 1741 and it is known as the Altbrandenstein pattern.

Examples of this service can be seen in the Rijksmuseum Amsterdam and in the Cummer Gallery of Art Jacksonville Florida
