Lucie Rie

Bowl


circa 1978

porcelain with grey and pale blue glaze and with pink horizontal inlaid lines

with the artist's cypher

4 ⅛ in. (10.6 cm) high

7 in. (17.7 cm) diameter

Overall in very good condition. This magnificent piece combines varying shades of blue and pink to the rim with a lavender grey base, and enhanced with inlaid decorations. The porcelain surface presents with very minor irregularities inherent to the making and to the artist’s handmade technique. This lot has been inspected under UV light and presents with no apparent evidence of restoration. A beautiful and delicate work that includes Lucie Rie’s signature color palette.
