This is a fine early example of a hand painted Vienna, Austria, fruit decor, Pedestal Fruit Bowl.
The attractive Pedestal Bowl measures 11" long, 4-1/2" wide, & 4-1/8" tall. The Bowl has been extensively decorated from end to end and on both sides with, what I believe are "Flowering Thorns" on stem and leaf against a creme brown, creme burnt orange/brown and brown decor. The Pedestal Bowl displays a very fancy scallop top rim heavily gilded and giving the Pedestal Bowl a rich look.
The Pedestal Bowl is in very good condition and totally damage free with the exception of an insignificant 1/16" firing line in the gold on the rim. The gold is better than excellent throughout.
The beautiful Pedestal Bowl displays an early "Vienna, Austria" mark and is signed by the Artist, "I. Boyle"
The Bowl is stunning in appearance and is fit for a table, counter or coffee table.
Please feel free to ask questions.
