Bernhard Bloch Art Nouveau Dish
Quite delightful and very rare Art Nouveau handled platter or fruit dish from Bernhard Bloch in the pleasing green and ochre shades that typify so much of his work.
With a very Nouveau maiden reclining into the naturalistic handle and wonderful stylised exotic flowers and buds decorating each end of the bowl.
Dating from the late 1890’s this has survived the years very well, with just some crazing to the glaze which is mainly confined to one side. There is a small dark spot at the foot of the lady’s dress, as can be seen on the photos, but this would appear to have been there since it was made. In our opinion, neither of these details detract in any way from the impact this lovely ceramic piece makes on display.
The width overall is a touch over 40 cm and the height around 22 cm.
