Cobalt blue Austrian porcelain reticulated Art Nouveau fernier depicting 2 different cherub scenes in medallions is being offered for your consideration. This beautiful and becoming difficult to find Art Nouveau fernier, measures 8 1/8 inches in diameter and 3 3/8 inches tall or deep with no chips, cracks or hairlines. There are two scenes: one cherub medallion scene with 2 cherubs reading a large book or folio and the other one with 2 cherubs floating in the clouds, both are quite detailed with the marvelous cherubs displayed with detailed facial features. It is signed with the Victoria Carlsbad Austria mark no. 21 from Robert E, Rontgen's book, Marks of German, Bohemian & Austrian Porcelain; indication it was produced between 1891-1918 by the Porcelain Factory Victoria of Altrohlau, Austria. There is some light age appropriate scuffing and beige/tan marks or light discoloration on the inside of the fernier, the unglazed foot ring has some light roughness and some light pitting of the cobalt is present, as well as, the era typical production anomalies; glaze skips, pits and tiny iron specks can be found; nothing in our opinion that detracts from its stunning appeal only that that affirms its age and authenticity. Their is a large amount of hand painted gold accenting to the fernier (shown in the photo taken straight down its sides). This is a wonderful display piece that will accent any decor with grand and magnificent style! (J6560)
