A large pair of Fürstenberg plates

The plates are beautifully painted and with fine gilding.
 
Duke Hendruk Julius of Brunswick-Wolfenbüttel had the still existing Sloss Fürstenberg built around 1600 on the site of an older castle, in which one of his successors, Charles I of Brunswick-Wolfenbüttel, commissioned Johann Georg von Langen to establish a porcelain factory in 1747. This brought some prosperity to the village, both through employment at the factory and its suppliers, and through improved connections: Among other things, Fürstenberg became an important stagecoach stop..The Fürstenberg porcelain factory is the third oldest producer of porcelain in Germany. The company is still in operation.
