Catalogue Note

The sketch and painting for the vase 'Snakes' was executed by Karl Friedrich Lijsberg (1860-1909), artist of the Danish Royal Porcelain Manufactory in Copenhagen who introduced new technique of decoration to the Imperial Porcelain Manufacotry. The offered lot is highly decorative and is one of the first examples of undeglaze painting combined with carving in flat relief and silhouette drawing.
