A beautiful Art Nouveau charger by Mettlach, the famous German art pottery company known for its chargers and beer steins. The etched stoneware bears a pattern often referred to as Bluebells: a motif of flowering trees and patterned lines in blue, cream and ochre. This charger was apparently produced during Mettlach's so-called golden age, from 1880-1910. Truly an uncommon fusion of natural and aesthetic designs, and of technicality and style. Piece is in excellent condition. Shipping costs to be determined upon location.
