Vintage Boehm Roses - Queen Elizabeth and Royal Highness – Both damaged
Boehm Roses - Queen Elizabeth and Royal Highness – One badly damaged, the other only slightly.
The roses up for sale are part of Edward Marshall Boehm "Rose Collection." Together these roses make a unique item. The `Queen Elizabeth' has several petals missing. The `Royal Highness' is only slightly damaged. It has one petal broken and it can be seen if looked for. When the two items are positioned correctly together it appears there are two blooms together, making an item that is definitely one of a kind. They have a base of bronze finished leaves and stems with thorns.
Boehm has long been recognized for creating pure porcelain from the whitest and purest clays and the exacting details of its artists. Each piece is hand-crafted using traditional methods derived from the ancient Chinese process of porcelain-making. The porcelain is fused at very high temperatures; sunlight, cold, water and passage of time will not affect it or fade the artwork.
The Boehm Studio was started in 1950 by Edward and Helen Boehm and as early as January 1951, The Metropolitan Museum of Art acquired two of their first sculptures.
