Beautiful Czechoslovakia & Osborne Studio of Chicago 1925 Hand Painted Scenic "Couple Strolling" 7-1/4" Heavy Etched Gold Vase by "Osborne"
Gorgeous from top to bottom is this early 1925 hand painted Scenic Vase by the Osborne Studio of Chicago.
Osborne Studio started in 1914 in Chicago by founder, Asbjorn Osborne, and soon became one of the top China decorating studios in Chicago, as well as in America. They competed with the best china decorating studios of the day including Pickard, Brauer, Donath, and Stouffer, as well as hundreds of other smaller professional studios. Asbjorn Osborne, as well as some former Pickard Studio Artist, did much of the Studio decorating. A complete section on the Osborne Art Studio can be found in Reed's Pickard Collectors Book and covers Pages 269--275. Many fine photo examples of Osborne Studio works can be found in the book including several similar pieces by Osborne and the Pickard Studio.
This beautiful Osborne Studio hand painted Creation, which measures 7-1/4" tall, 17-1/4" around, & about 5-1/2" wide, has been wonderfully decorated with a Scene of a "Couple Strolling" down the lane. The Scene is set against an all fire gilded gold background with intricate Daisies & Roses etching throughout. In the middle of the Vase is a iridescent ribbon of light green encircling the Vase & displaying gold stenciled Roses.
The attractive Osborne Studio hand painted Scenic Vase is in excellent condition and totally free of chips, cracks, or other damage....with the gold closer to pristine than excellent.....and showing only a tiny bit of wear.
The outstanding hand painted Scenic "Couple Strolling" Heavy Etched Gold Vase displays a double mark; "Epiag Royal Made in Czechoslovakia" and the Osborne Studio of Chicago decorating Mark # 5, which was used from 1925--35.
The gorgeous hand painted Scenic "Couple Strolling" Heavy Etched Gold Vase shows exceptionally well.
