Hand painted porcelain expresses the emotional connection between the artist and subject. This gorgeous oval serving bowl shows the artist's passion and understanding of beautiful floral arrangements and presentation. Executed in a small home-studio environment, dated 1913, by A. (Alice) Basedow. I have other lovely pieces executed by this artist in my store. The bowl is painted on a Favorite Bavaria white-ware blank, circa early 1900's..
The bowl presents a combination floral motif which forms a wide border around the piece. The outer gently scalloped edge is enhanced with a gold band. The three different floral consists of Wild Roses in vivid pink with deep golden centers and white stamens; White Daisies with deep golden centers and Forget-Me-Not in striking shades of deep to lighter blue. All of the different floral are nestled in foliage of shaded greens, browns and blue-green against a background of muted splashes of pastel blue, pink and blue-green.l The oval serving bowl measures10 3/4" in length, 8 3/8" across and 1 3/4" in depth with no cracks, chips or repairs; near mint. Beautiful.
