This Rasmus 'Peter' Ipsen compote from Bornholm, Denmark stands a respectable 9.75" high by 10" in diameter. It has a wonderfully shapely form, with a generous palette. It is stylized in a 'Tree of Life' form, with twisting branches eminating in the platform base, rising up the sides, and sproutng large leaves, which form the basin bowl of the compote, which is very large at 10" in diameter. This compote is glazed in a rich and vibrant orange and brown combination of glazes, with very complementary colors in the decoration, which is very striking in its presentation. It is well marked on the base, and in excellent near mint condition, with just a couple of fine surface glaze rubs/nicks on the platform edge, and a stress line under the base, which does not go through to the top. If you like Danish pottery, or Ipsen's work in particular, you will absolutely LOVE this very large and impressive 'Tree of Life' compote!
