Missing Meissen

May 28th, 2008

Daniel Pontius

Candelabrum, from a service made for Graf Alexander Joseph Sulkowsky (1695-1762) and his wife Marie Anne Franziska von Stain (1712-41) Hard paste porcelain. Model by Joseph Joachim Kandler (1706-1775) Meissen, 1736. This is my favorite Kandler piece. I first saw it at the MET in 2001. I took many pictures at the time; which I like to fixate on, pulling them out from the stacks of photos that one accumalates and carries from city to city and apartment to apartment. I had to have another visit on my last trip in NYC and I was not disappointed. There are just too many details to discuss.
