Limited Masterworks 2016 Tea Caddy Lotus Flowers and Tendrils

Order No.: 589884-52M07-1
11x8 cm, 260 g
The "Tea Caddy Lotus Flowers and Tendrils" as first made in 1710, when the manufactory was founded, based on Chinese models, but made of Böttger stoneware. The front and back and the lid knob of the box, highlighted with high-carat gold, are square. The decor plays with squares in its strict division of space. They are painted according to old models with stylized lotus blossoms, which symbolise purity, loyalty and creativity in large parts of Asia. The motifs are designed with sharpened fire blue, which sinks deep into the glaze at high firing temperatures, and thus have a special intensity and depth, which is emphasized by the fine contours of high-carat gold. They contrast with naturally curved lines of strict angularity - an enchanting interplay of opposites that unite to perfect harmony. Limited to 50 pieces.
