Perched on the bulbous shape of the vase, the porcelain butterfly sits as though it had just landed a moment ago, its wings still fluttering. It is one of the first harbingers of spring; a figure that radiates joy and light-heartedness. The butterfly's delicate body is a testament to the precise embossing techniques upheld by Meissen's artisans. The various parts of the wings are retouched by hand - with a special focus placed on their veins and cells - and then applied to the vase. With its clear lines, bulbous body and square opening, the modern vase design stands in stark contrast to the elaborate, filigree ornamentation. A lively interplay of traditional craftsmanship and contemporary design captured in exquisite porcelain.
