The royal collection of August the Strong features a round-footed, pear-shaped vessel with side handle loops. It is adorned with a Kakiemon decoration depicting rocks and peonies. The rim and handle are embellished with a wide vine border, following the Japanese model of a jug created for the European market at the beginning of the 18th century. The Kakiemon decoration is polychrome and accented with gold. It is housed in the Johannem (or Palais) number "N = 80 w". The minimum condition is acceptable, with a sword mark in overglaze blue. The height of the vessel is 13 cm. This jug, created around 1730, was produced in two sizes. A smaller version with Palais number "80" from the former Hans Syz collection was confiscated in April 1731, along with other related pieces, and taken into the royal collection with a Palais number. See Eikelmann/Weber, Vol. II, p. 198, as well as Catalogue 173ff. The MET Museum, New York, Inventory Number 1995.268.100. Provenance: Formerly part of the royal collection of August the Strong in the Japanese Palais. A rare porcelain jug with Kakiemon decor. Made in Meissen around 1730.
