Dresden Helena Wolfsohn Vase With Cover

Presented for sale is a stunning pink ground Dresden porcelain vase with cover decorated in the Royal Vienna style. The vase bears a spurious mark for Augustus Rex, Meissen, but was probably decorated by Helena Wolfsohn's Dresden decorating shop. The vase is hand painted with equestrian pastoral scenes alternating with panels of floral bouquets, enhanced with gilt trim and borders. The cover mimics the vase.

Helena Wolfsohn owned a porcelain-decorating studio, which began operation in Dresden, Germany, in 1843. During her lifetime, her shop was one of the most prolific decorating studios in Dresden. She did not produce her own porcelain but purchased white blanks from Meissen as well as from other famous porcelain factories. Her mark was often mistaken for one of those factories, especially Meissen. Whether or not this was done on purpose to deceive is still in question amongst historians. However what is not in question, is that she painted pieces of exceptional quality and artistic merit, and that her wares have become collectible in their own right.

The vase and cover are in excellent condition with a minute amount of age related gilt wear mostly to the finial.

Size: 12 ¾" Height.
