$5,600.00
Quantity available: 1
In an extraordinarily fine state of preservation, this rare German faience charger was created in the early Frankfurt am Main factory of Johann Simonet in the late Seventeenth Century. Its lively decoration in the Chinese style features birds and stylized flowers in an imaginative landscape. Elaborate double channeling lends further animation to the effect. Approximately 14 inches in diameter and 2-1/2 inches deep, it has no breaks or repairs. Comparable examples are displayed in important museum collections, such as the Kunstgewerbermuseum, Vienna, and the Art Institute of Chicago.
