Freely turned and decorated with lush hand painting, the "Vase Lily Pond" is a Limited Masterwork made of Meissen porcelain. The circular, 19.5 cm high "Vase Lily Pond" is part of a group of vases by MEISSEN porcelain painter Horst Brettschneider. What sets this motif apart is that it represents a break with traditional flower painting: the group of vases lends the impression of viewing a lily pond, whereby each vase depicts a different circular segment of the pond. Though sleek or avant garde at first glance, the vase design, upon closer inspection, reveals subtle hints to its artisanal production. For Brettschneider, everyday observations of natural phenomena, their fleeting beauty, are what inspire him to create works of unparalleled virtuosity. With just a few colours or subtle nuances, this master of natural paintings captures and breathes life into moments filled with longing on Meissen porcelain.
