Baroque handled vase with wind anemones, H 41 cm

This rare handled vase from the Baroque, which once adorned the palaces not only of the Saxon nobility, has an exceedingly prestigious presence. Whilst its relief mouldings and bands are picked out in sumptuous 23-carat gold, its softly spoken pattern is in a quite different idiom that lends the vase its singular charm: it depicts tiny wind anemones sprouting up from a continuous pale-green ground symbolising the depths of the woods. These anemones herald the coming of spring and Nature's awakening from her wintry slumbers. They have been intricately brushed onto the coloured ground in such an enchantingly precious, richly detailed, lifelike manner that the moths painted fluttering around the flowers may not be all they attract.

Meissen flower painter Katrin Getzlaff had resort to a nature study from the beginning of the last century, the artistic heyday of impressionist flower painting at MEISSEN®, as the graphic source for the vase's decoration.
