Hand painted porcelain expresses the emotional connection between the artist and subject. This lovely dresser/vanity set shows the artist's passion and understanding of beautiful floral arrangements and presentation. Executed in a small home-studio environment, circa 1913, by Alice Basedow. I have other lovely pieces executed buy this artist in my store. They are painted on Bavaria white-ware blanks, circa early 1900's.
This is lovely 5-piece vanity or dresser set consists of a contoured-shape tray, round footed covered powder box and round footed covered hair receiver. The items are decorated with clusters and single Forget-Me-Not blossoms in variegated shades of medium to dark blue nestled among shaded green and blue-green foliage. The wide folded in border of the tray, shell-shaped feet and cover edges of the powder box and hair receiver are gold gilt.
The tray measures 12 1/4" in length, 9 1/2" in width 1 1/8" in depth. Both the covered powder and covered hair receiver measure 4 1/2" across, 3 3/4" in height. All three pieces are stamped "Bavaria". The tray is signed and dated "Alice Basedow 1913"; the powder box and hair receiver is not signed or dated. There are no cracks, chips or repairs. Lovely set.
