Art Nouveau Figural Card Tray

Item Description

Stylish Art Nouveau sculpture from Bernhard Bloch depicting a barefoot young lady, seated on a naturalistic base and resting on one knee two overlapping lily pads which she is offering forward.  The bud of a lily flower lies on the pads which together form the tray on to which visitors of the day would place their calling cards.

Beautifully sculpted, with the girl’s face, upswept hair and her draped clothing all showing the usual care and attention to detail these Bloch terracotta pieces are known for. Even the underside of the lily leaf is carefully detailed to show its natural veining.

Finished in just the right earthy shades of browns, greens and bronzes and in very good condition considering it dates from the late 1800’s.

Numbered 127 and 7546 beneath and with the impressed BB initials.  A good size at 65 cm. high.

Ref: 13050
