This large Meissen centerpiece crafted of biscuit exhibits the firm’s artistry in Neoclassical aesthetic. It features an allegorical group composed of four children detailing the Four Seasons: Spring wears a wreath and holds flowers, Summer has a bundle of wheat, Autumn - a rich bunch and a basket of grapes, and Winter - a torch. The theme of the Four Seasons, a traditional allegorical subject since the Renaissance, was very popular during the 18th century. The four putti are leaning against a foliated column supporting an openwork fruit basket.
The group rests on a circular base and feet ornamented with Greek motifs and laurel garlands. The porcelain features the blue crossed swords mark with a dot (1763-1773) underneath.
