Antique Hand Painted Art Nouveau Porcelain Ewer Poppies with Moriage
A beautiful late 19th / early 20th century ewer (jug), completely hand painted with pink and burgundy colored poppies, green leaves and a soft grey-blue background with a graceful Art Nouveau shape. The banding around the middle, top and lip is a light jade green with raised white beaded 'jewels' (dots). Hand painted gold trim outlines the leaves, stripes, base and edge, with a pretty wavy line and dot design along the handle in gold as well.
This remarkable piece of antique porcelain art is 4" tall and about 3-1/2" wide, with no maker or decorator mark, but the style, quality and design elements all point to late 19th century unmarked Nippon porcelain. The painting is just beautiful and done with great attention to detail, and the design is balanced and very elegant.
The condition is excellent; there is one tiny flake on the inside of the lip on one side (about 3mm), which I believe was there before the piece was decorated, as the gold trim was painted right over it at the very edge. It is not visible from the outside, and is a very minor flaw. There are no other chips, cracks, flaking, crazing or any other issues.
