Adolph Heidrich was an outstanding 19th century listed Chicago China Decorator. Alan Reed, the author of the Pickard China Collectors Book, believed that Heidrich possibly decorated for the Chicago Pickard Decorating Studio in and about 1903--1910. Heidrich was well known for his animal and monk pieces including Dogs, Deer, Elk, Moose, and Lions. Heidrich also decorated for the Edward Donath Studio in the early years of the 20th Century. Some of his fine works can be seen on P. 258 and 259 of Reed's Pickard Collectors Book.
In 1915 Heidrich opened up his own decorating studio...having learned his art talent from his well known artist father Anton. Very few of Heidrich's pieces ever surface and are eagerly sought after by collectors. Alan Reed has a two page section in his book [P.262-263] on the A.Heidrich Studio which operated from 1915--1922.
This is one of Heidrich's favorite and most rare examples of his incredible works; a superb 6-3/4" Cache Pot depicting the bust of a Lion with a Savannah Oasis on the backside. The presentation, quality of work, and use of colors shows a professional master at work.
The Lion Cache Pot is in excellent condition and totally damage free of nicks, chips, cracks, or other damage....with the gold being excellent.
The Cache Pot displays an early "Limoges France" mark, as well as Adolph Heidrich rare Studio mark.....and has been signed by the Artist, "A. Heidrich".
The Cache Pot has incredible detail and has virtually been decorated from end to end. The quality of Heidrich's work and great use of colors make this a much desired piece by Pickard and Heidrich collectors.
