Product Details

  • From a private collection we offer this scarce and stunning Art Nouveau German Royal Bonn heart shaped handled vase painted with floral designs in period style in the Old Dutch design and dating circa 1890 and 1920. Made by Franz Anton Mehlem this fine and elegantly shaped vase is very similar in style to vases decorated in Holland and particularly those by the highly sought after Dutch Rozenburg Pottery. The vase stands on a narrow oval unglazed foot with a rounded flat heart shaped body with a narrow raised neck and with a slight trumpet shaped top. A shaped loop handle is attached to the side. The body of the vase is hand painted with fine floral and berry designs on a deep blue ground with a yellow, brown and white zebra design to the handle and a yellow line painted around the foot. This scarce elegant vase is painted in coloured enamels and has painted Royal Bonn marks to the base along with painted Old Dutch markings and further painted and impressed design and style numbers.
