Made in Germany.  The Meissen painters created hybrids that resembled flora more familiar to Europeans.   The so-called "onions" are not onions at all, but, according to historians, are most likely mutations of the peaches and pomegranates, modeled on the original Chinese pattern.  Meissen porcelain has been considered the finest by European aristocracy as well as decorative arts connoisseurs for 250 years.
