About this artwork
Known as the “princess feather” pattern, the design of this dish illustrates the ornate effects that can be achieved by pressing glass into a mold. In the mid-19th century, the German porcelain manufacturer Meissen produced a line of porcelain with similar decoration of naturalistic fruits and flowers. The porcelain was inspired by the archival collection of American pressed glass amassed by the firm.
