Very few artistic movements have made such a lasting impact or inspired so many as the Art Deco era.
This wonderful little sugar bowl is a picture-perfect example of some of the colors and design that characterized Art Deco style.
It is a wonderful example of classic Deco shape, color and design.
Made of delicate but durable porcelain, the dish is quite light-weight but features no chips of any kind.
Generally, the higher the quality of porcelain, the lighter the piece. The porcelain here is bright white on the base. It "tings" when you lightly "flick" it.
It is unmarked which was typical in the era between 1891 and 1921, during a non regulated period for imported china.
Perhaps the most eye-catching feature is the dazzling gold that covers the arms, base, and mouth of the bowl as well as the edge and handle of the lid.
This makes a perfect complement for the bone-white and mint green that colors the decorative design. As you can see, gold adorns the decoration on the sides as does a delicate black outline.
The graceful symmetry of the design on the sides and lid of the sugar bowl (in addition to their unique coloring) is patently Art Deco.
It really is one of the finest examples we've seen.
There are some very minor areas of paint-loss on the rim of the dish, though this is obscured when the lid is on.
Overall, this elegant sugar bowl remains in outstanding vintage condition.
