This fantastical design comes from the hand of Bjorn Wiinblad for the world renowned Rosenthal Company. The decorative vase enchants the viewer with its whimsical character and gorgeous gilt work. A simple gold and white palette allows the eye to swallow the ornate and fantastical details that cause the piece to breathe such life and give the vase a hint of elegance. This color scheme is ironic given the name of the piece - "Four colors". Organic triangular forms mesh with budding, larger than life flowers. They surround the regal figure in the center and add a celebratory tone. This decorative art would make a fine addition to any home or collection.
The Rosenthal Company was founded by Philip Rosenthal Sr. in 1879 in Selb, Germany. Over the decades, it has emerged to one of the world's finest porcelain and crystal manufacturers in the world. Rosenthal recognizes that throughout history the things that people have valued the most and that have held their value, have always been innovative, original and reflective of the spirit of the time. For this reason, Rosenthal continues to be very collectible and cherished even to this day. This particular piece was designed by Scandinavian designer Bjorn Wiinblad (see signature in the photos). Born in Denmark, Wiinblad began working for Rosenthal in 1957. He designed numerous ranges, including “Asimmetria”, “Lotus”, “Romanze”, and “Zauberflote”. Within the limited art series he created the furniture system “Die vier Himmelsrichtunaen”. He also designed porcelain greeting cards. The creative energy that informs every single Wiinblad piece enabled him to create a style like no other that is instantly recognizable. He is truly a renaissance artist and, though he is no longer with us, will be remembered for generations to come.
