Pair of Helena Wolfsohn Ginger Jars

ca. 1880-1881, German, in the Meissen taste, decorated with alternating panels of Watteau-style figures in landscapes and floral panels on a robin's-egg blue ground, framed in gilt scrollwork, the bases with spurious "Augustus Rex" underglaze blue marks.
h. 14", dia. 6-1/2"

Provenance: Estate of Edward "Ted" L'Engle Baker and Ann McDonald Baker, Jacksonville, Florida.

Estimate $1,000-1,500

Generally good condition.
Decorated in a rich, vivid palette.
ONE: With remnants of an old paper staicker at the gilded shoulder. A slightly rough area at the shoulder above a floral reserve, probably a firing anomaly.
OTHER: One figural reserve with parallel vertical scratches (approx. 3") down the sleeve through the pink skirt of the seated figure and ending in an "X" scratch at the ground.
