40 cm, 5900 g
The art deco floral and vegetal patterns that Emil Paul Börner designed for his vessels in the 1920s and 1930s occupy a special place in the ranks of decorative art from Meissen. The middle of Börner's vase is taken up by stylised flowers such as sunflowers, pansies or thistles which the painter Ulrich Mehner has applied to the still porous porcelain in brilliant cobalt blue, surely the most famous of all Meissen underglaze colours. The paint is immediately absorbed by the unfired, unglazed ceramic body and only takes on its full luminosity and intensity once the piece has been glost-fired. Lending depth to a pattern despite only having a single colour to work with invariably constitutes a huge challenge for artists.
