Vintage Dutch Studio Pottery Hand Painted / Illustrated Horse and Carriage Wall Plates | Signed
THE ITEM This elegant pair of hand-illustrated and painted works are from Amsterdam by Dutch artist T Wagner.
Crafted from red clay, the shape of these plates are smoothly spun and very mildly concave. Both dishes are overlaid with a thickly applied, smooth Stone hued glaze which operates as a canvas. Delicately illustrated on one plate with a deep navy-black is a spirited, galloping horse which has been painted in a palette of Turquoise teal and Lemon Sherbet yellow. Illustrated on the other plate in a similarly delicate manner with a deep Sepia, is the horse and carriage scene which has been painted in a matching colour palette of deep navy-black, Turquoise teal and Lemon Sherbet yellow. Both plates are finished with a clear, gloss glaze.
These finely composed pieces resemble watercolour paintings, works of art captured in ceramic and bring with them charming, idyllic vibes.
CONDITION Excellent. No chips, damage or repairs. There is mild age wear that is most evident in the mild crazing all over, please refer to photos as they form part of the condition report. The reverse side of both plates is signed with the initials of 'TW' and have the necessary notches for threading hanging cords.
