Beautiful, Rare, Mid-Century Bjorn Wiinblad Designed Porcelain And Gold Paint Vase, for Rosenthal (Germany)

Rare mid-century white porcelain painted gold vase designed by Bjørn Wiinblad for the important German porcelain manufacturer, Rosenthal. Like new condition. Chinoiserie design.
Signature of the artist on the bottom of the vase above the symbol of the porcelain manufacturer. One side of the vase features a very unique harlequin and the other a peacock design. The detail of the decoration is complex, nuanced and exquisite.

This vase is one of the rare Quatre Couleurs line which the artist produced for Rosenthal in the last century. It is made of beautiful white porcelain and decorated with various tones of gold paint. In certain areas of the piece, the artist has made raise painted areas for a three-dimensional effect. This is an important work of art.

His colors are saturated and strong—sometimes almost psychedelic—and are often supplemented with metallic gold or silver….”

“…In 1954 Wiinblad began collaborating with businesses and organizations in Dallas, Texas, and later operated a store in the city during the 1980s. He received commissions from the Dallas Ballet (costume and set design), Dallas Theater Center, Neiman Marcus, Thanks-Giving Square, and multiple projects for developer Trammell Crow. For the Dallas International Apparel Mart he designed five massive Scheherazade tapestries, where they were displayed from 1973 until the building was closed in 2004…”.
