These elegant flower sculptures were created in Germany in the late 19th Century in the style of Meissen Porcelain Manufactory wares. The Meissen factory was famous for its Rococo style porcelain decorative arts, which often included finely modelled and colourfully painted ornaments. These flower models are signed on their undersides with an imitation of the Meissen factory mark.
The sculptures are composed of delicately modelled flower heads which are variously painted white, yellow, light pink, purple, orange, blue and green. These bloom from painted metal stems with broad pointed leaves. These flowers spring from porcelain plant pots (or jardinières) with rectangular bodies and C-scroll shaped sides. The pots feature detailed paintings of colourful flower bouquets, which include tulips, roses, chrysanthemums, forget-me-nots, daffodils and so on. The edges of the pots are decorated with washes of turquoise and purple paint, as well as gilt highlights.
