This stylised Italian 'Alla Moda' [Tr. 'Fashionable'] work of Art Pottery is of mid-century Modernist design. 

Currently held on consignment at Andrews Oakville

The gently exaggerated curves create beautifully sleek arches 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 pieces. 

This charming and elegant work is suitable for standalone display or for functional use as a vide poche. 

CONDITION
Excellent. No chips, cracks, or repairs. The most notable wear is to the handpainted gold trim and mild movement marks on the underside of the base that is commensurable with the age of the pieces. Mentioned for completeness: There is one area at the base rim with incomplete glazing and dusting of black glaze that was part of the production process and not damage. Please refer to photographs as they form part of the condition report. The base bears the handpainted model numbers '1459/42', '4759/49' and the origin of 'Italy'.
