Art Nouveau Goldscheider Maiden Vase
Rare Art Nouveau terracotta figural vase by Goldscheider signed by the artist Lesca, dating from circa 1900.
Depicting an Art Nouveau maiden seated rather demurely on the bulbous lower part of the vase. She is looking at an easel-backed tablet or plaque which she holds in her left hand.
Wearing a full diaphanous dress, the top of which has slipped off her shoulders, and with her hair in a chignon, a style that was so fashionable during that period, the lady is so typically Art Nouveau.
Showing the signature of the artist and marked with the Goldscheider plaque together with the model number which, although not completely clear, looks to read 01341/4/17.
We’ve not come across this model before and it is not listed in either the Dechant/Goldscheider or Pinhas books.
The overall height is just under 60 cm and the condition is good, commensurate with its age. We have made no attempt to clean it, preferring to leave it with its authentic aged look.
