Meissen saucer circa 1750 with Horse and Hound Dog


An interesting Meissen saucer circa 1750 with an equestrian scene with a mounted gentleman carrying his rifle and accompanied by Mastiff type dog or a European hound. The scene is after an engraving by Ridinger. The back has crossed blue swords and the Pressmark 2. There is also a label attached to the back written in a very small hand in German saying to compare this piece to one in the Meissen collection of Ernst Schneider in the National Museum Dusseldorf. There are no chips or cracks to the saucer, but the gilt on the rim is worn and the gilt has lifted from a few small spots in other places. It is 5 1/4 inches in diameter.
