This wonderful footed bowl has been painted in the fabulous Aura Argenta Linear Motif by the Pickard Studio artist G Hiecke. Platinum instead of silver was used when painting Aura Argenta Linear so there would be no issue with tarnishing. The hand painted art nouveau design on this antique porcelain piece consists of a pale ivory background with 24k gold, black and platinum pattern framing stylized sprigs of platinum berries and gold flowers. The signature ‘Hiecke' can be found on the inside upper edge. Gustav Hiecke was a well-known professional porcelain artist who was active at Pickard Studios in the late 1914 or early 1915. He did his own variation of the Aura Argenta Linear pattern as well as many stylized and geometric border designs. This piece is in excellent condition with no chips or cracks. Manufacturing anomalies may exist, the occasional tiny iron speck, dust 'bump' in the glaze, etc.
