This Avante garde porcelain platter is attributed to Martin Fritzsche. It is similar to works in the Broham Museum in Berlin. The platter is 17” long, 13 3/4” wide 2 3/4 inches high. It has a Seger mark under glaze, the model number 5894 incised in the porcelain and worn, unintelligible painted letters. The design is 3 dimensional with unique crystalline glazes in shades of moss green brown & turquoise. A sea maiden rising from the waters wears an ornate headdress with braids, beads and modeled blossoms in Art Nouveau fashion. Most examples of this work are one of a kind and are exhibited in museums in Germany. Condition: Minor roughness to some petals on raised blossoms. Small firing separation on back rim with some filler. More photos available upon request.
