Bavarian Porcelain Iris Design Jardinière/Planter/Vase (c.1910-1930's) - image 1 of 13

Offered for purchase is a stunning Bavarian Porcelain Iris Design Jardiniere/Planter/Vase (c.1910-1930's) hand-painted/decorated in the US or Canada as part of the Arts & Crafts movement. The vase is in excellent condition... no chips, cracks or repairs, although there are some scratches and wear from age and use. Please keep in mind that this item is not new and therefore may have minor wear or missing decoration - I attempt to identify major issues with the item, if any, but please look at the photos carefully. The vase is approximately 5 inches tall, 9.25 inches in diameter, and is marked as shown in the pictures. It is interesting that the marks on the bottom are the decorator’s color coding for the various shades of purple for the irises.

China Decorating: In the late 1880's through the 1940's, a very popular amateur hobby or craft was in vogue known as "china decorating". The items used for decorating originated as porcelain blanks (white porcelain) often manufactured in Europe (France, Bavaria, Austro-Hungarian Empire) and imported into the US and Canada for women and men to decorate as part of this craft. In addition, the Ceramic Art Company, Lenox Belleek and Willets Belleek companies from New Jersey also sold blank porcelain for china decorators.
