Description

These are a pair of Augustus Rex vases with very finely enameled decoration and edge gilding. The vase tops professionally repaired and not detectable.

The Augustus Rex mark or monogram (AR) was introduced by Meissen in the first half of the 18th century when the crossed swords were introduced. The AR monogram was a special mark reserved for objects used by the court of Elector August the Strong, founder of the Meissen factory and later reigning monarch of Poland, King August II. It was also added to pieces produced for the court of his son, August III, who succeeded him in 1733. All court pieces were marked with the AR monogram, and occasionally the mark was added to gifts produced for royal visitors.

The mark was always applied by hand, in underglaze blue, and some variations exist.
