"Autumn" vase, H 40 cm

It was unmistakeably an "Indian summer" that inspired Meissen artist Horst Bretschneider to decorate this consummately designed, hand-thrown vase as he has. Travelling through Japan and Canada, he enjoyed the splendid colouring of deciduous woodlands in early autumn, when the crowns of poplars are already yellow after the first frost whilst those of the maple have mutated into all shades of red. Our porcelain painter spent long hours in the Manufactory laboratory experimenting with new colours that would enable him to commit every luminous facet of this captivating natural spectacle to porcelain. He lets his trees tower up over the entire length of the vase, imparting them with a curvature that makes it seem as if their crowns were leaning towards the beholder. They are painted on leaf by leaf in the new colour shades, which vary from yellow to dark red, and picked out in 23-carat gold in such a way as to appear to be bathed in sunlight. Branches and trunks stand back like shadows behind the last great spectacle that Nature has to offer before the onset of winter. The first leaves are already falling and yet, luckily, the reddish golden fire of Bretschneider's autumn scheme, one that kicks off a new collection of Meissen Four Seasons vases, will never fade.
