This porcelain urn was produced in Germany by the Ambrosius Lamm Dresden Studio in the 1890s. The porcelain was produced in Vienna Austria and Lamm decorated it. The urn measures 16 1/2” at the handles and 14 1/8” without the handles. The bowl measures 14” long and 9” wide. From handle to handle it is 20”. It is a most impressive size. The urn is constructed in 2 pieces and is bolted together. The bowl is separate from the pedestal base attached to a plinth. A metal fastener connects to a rod which extends down through the base and is bolted. The handles are twisted and end as the heads of birds resting on each side of the bowl. They are richly gilded. The body of the bowl is molded with a raised, fan-like section near the pedestal. The base is molded with trophy objects such as shields, torches, bow and arrows. They are decorated in gold. The body of the bowl is intricately hand painted and gilded. The design has gilded vases filled with colorful flowers. Garlands of flowers and smaller sprays of flowers fill the wide band around the top of the urn. They are adorned with elaborate raised gilding and finely beaded panels. The lower portion of the urn with the molded fan has tiny flowers filling each segment. The pedestal base has the gilded vases of flowers matching the top panel. There are a few flower buds around the interior band. If you are familiar with Lamm Dresden work, you will recognize this pattern which was used to decorate cups and saucer and plates. This piece is done in the same pattern but on a tremendous scale. It is impossible to say how many of these were produced or how many might still exist. It is a magnificent centerpiece for a dining table or to place on a pedestal in an entry way. The urn weighs 11 pounds unwrapped. We would take it apart and package the two pieces separately. At this time, the shipping charges are unknown. That will be determined when it is to be shipped. Condition: Excellent. There is no damage or restoration of any kind. The gilding is in excellent condition.

This ceramic wall plaque was produced in France at the Manufacture Nationale de Sevres in 1928. The artist is Adrian August Leduc. His painted signature is on the back of the plaque as well as an impressed mark. It measures 11 ¼ inches in diameter and is 1 ½ inches deep. The design is abstract and high relief. There are rows of white circles with gray accents. There is wonderful texture to the surface. You can interpret them as bubbles, cotton balls, ova, ice or whatever comes to your mind. The border has bands of charcoal gray that are intentionally crackled and mottled. The border frames the plaque with contrast and additional interest. The surface has a shiny glaze, slightly crazed, which is pleasing to the eye. It is complete with a custom made metal frame and hanger made of brass or bronze. It is well suited to hold the weight of this piece. When you concentrate on the elements of its design, it grows on you.
