This stylised work of Italian 'Alla Moda' [Tr. 'Fashionable'] ceramic is in mid-century Modernist design.
The gently exaggerated curve creates a beautifully sleek arch giving the dish the form of a lightly curled leaf. Accentuating the form is a textured Milk white glaze that creates the canvas for the handpainted vibrant Poppy and flora design with a gold-edged trim framing the piece.
The rarity of this piece comes from the wrapped wire stand with undulating curves and tipped feet that reflect the Atomic design influences of the time.
This elegant work is suitable for standalone display or for functional use as a vide poche.
Excellent. No chips, cracks, or repairs. Most notable wear is to the handpainted gold trim and mild movement marks on the underside of the base that are commensurable with the age of the piece. Please refer to photographs as they form part of the condition report. The base bears model number '192' and origin of 'Italy'.
