Spectacular & Scarce D & Co. France Limoges 1900's Hand Painted "Woodland Nude" 14-1/2" Vase by the Listed Pickard Artist, "Adolph Heidrich
Adolph Heidrich was one of the outstanding 19th century listed Chicago China Decorator. Alan Reed, the author of the Pickard China Collectors Book, believed that Heidrich possibly decorated for the Chicago Pickard Decorating Studio in and about 1903--1910.
Heidrich’s career also included decorating for both the Edward Donath Studio & the D’Arcy Studio of Kalamazoo, MI. in the early years of the 20th Century prior to opening his own Chicago Decorating Studio, which ran from 1915-1922. Some of Heidrich’s outstanding works can be seen on P. 258 and 259 of Reed's Pickard Collectors Book.
Heidrich was well known for his animal and monk pieces including Dogs, Deer, Elk, Moose, and Lions. Few people are aware that Heidrich also produced outstanding Nude décor creations.
This is an exceptional example of Adolph Heidrich fine artistic work; a beautiful D & Co. France Limoges hand painted Nude Vase.
The beautiful Vase measures a large 14-1/2" tall, about 20" around and almost 7" wide. Please view the photos to see the extensive and exceptional artwork depicting a Nude partial covered in a sheer dress .....all against a woodland scene. Every inch of the Vase has been well decorated and the heavy gilded gold accenting at the top of the Vase adding to the rich look and appearance. The incredible artwork, wonderful use of colors, and outstanding presentation are all earmarks of a master decorator.
The gorgeous Heidrich "Nude" Vase is in excellent condition and totally free of chips, cracks, or other damage with the exception of a drill hole as seen in my photo..with the heavy fire gold gilded top also in excellent condition.
The exquisite looking "Nude" Vase displays an early "D & Co. France" Limoges mark and has been artist signed; "A. Heidrich".
The outstanding Heidrich "Nude" Vase shows exceptionally well and will make an outstanding display piece.
