Offered for sale is a sensational 1900 circa Turn Teplitz center bowl by Ernst Wahliss in the Art Nouveau style. The bowl is resplendently decorated with raised leaves and flowers painted boldly on the front while the subtle background portrays a green forest. The border is reticulated with ear shaped handles and the bowl is raised on a footed base.
The hand-painted workmanship on Wahliss pieces is nothing short of extraordinary, with no two ever being completely alike. The fanciful shapes, the iridescent glazes, and the blending of enamel palettes is the mark of a ceramic genius.
The bowl is in excellent condition.
Size: 11” Length by 7” Height.
