SOLD IT! ($145.00) Outstanding



Description: Exquisite old wall pocket, very Art Nouveau in appearance, depicting a kingfisher clinging to the stem of a lotus. This piece does not show any signs of being used with water: it is clean and there is no damage. It measures 8 inches high, 5 inches wide, and about 2 inches deep from back to front. It was made with great care and artistry: The plant and bird are accurate, and the artisan painstakingly added stiff protective hairs on the stems that are frequently found on the live plants in nature. The base clay is fine and off-white, the glaze surfaces are glossy and dense, and there is very slight opalescence on the green leaf surfaces. Back markings include a raised die-stamped number 8, and a number 7 stamped in red. This piece came out of a long-sealed crate with other items of known age & origin, but we can't positively ID it.
