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 Powdered Peach tone glaze on the interior, creating the canvas for the handpainted vibrant Poppy and flora design with a gold-edged trim framing the piece. The piece is finished with a Milk white textured glaze on the exterior, cupping the form.
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 are 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 '60' and origin of 'Italy'.
