Pattern Spotlight: Court Dragon, Meissen

Court Dragon (Meissen, Dresden) has been an old favorite of mine since I first came across it in a museum collection years ago. It has always seemed a bit gothic and darkly spirited. Certainly, no pattern for someone who chose Chantilly as their flatware, but so paralyzing beautiful in many ways. Not to mention a Meissen icon if ever they have one. Unfortunately, this gilted service is not for everyone, new five piece place setting will set you back $1700. Magnificent to look at, but...

At my mother's we eat off blue Meissen. Carefully.
