Meissen blue onion dinnerware has been popular for the past 300 years. Please look at my blog on The History of Meissen Blue Onion Porcelain for much more information. On this page, you will see a wonderful and rare selection of Meissen blue onion dinnerware that Elegant Findings has. If you look at Page 12, Meissen blue onion porcelain, you will see an even larger selection.
I would like to discuss some of the rare Meissen blue onion pieces we offer on this page. We have a set of twelve Meissen pots de cremes with handles and a gilded border and another set of eleven handled Meissen pots de cremes without a gilded border. These are very rare, as in the past thirty years, I have only seen and had five of these handled pots de cremes. These would make an elegant addition to any table setting. We have a rare set of 11 Meissen reticulated appetizer plates, as well as a set of reticulated Meissen dessert or luncheon plates. The leaf bowls that we offer are also very special. They are even decorated on the bottoms of the bowls with raised flowers and vines. You will also see a rare set of large crescent shaped dishes. These were originally considered bone dishes. However, because of their large size, they can be used for bread or rolls or for salad plates. We also offer you a set of covered bowls with flowers on top to keep your delicious gourmet selection warm while you serve it. It is very unusual to find double egg cups, but we have some of these for your special breakfast or brunch. For your elegant high teas, we have a set of 20 gilded cups and saucers also in the Meissen blue onion pattern. If you love hot chocolate or espresso coffee, we offer you a set of demitasse cups and saucers. In addition, we have many square serving bowls and platters on which to serve your fabulous dinners. Last but not least, we have the crowning glory of your table, a Meissen soup tureen. All of these Meissen blue onion pieces are signed with the crossed sword marks, and date from before 1890s to 1930. If you love Meissen blue onion like people have loved for three hundred years, you can choose any of these Meissen blue onion pieces for your own collection to make your table and meals more fabulous!
