Bulbous vessel on an oval floor plan with a wave-shaped, leaning base, an irregular, billowing and foaming seawater modeled surface with a green-gray marbled glaze, pierced and surrounded by two sculptured sea nymphs in white who catch fish with the help of a net. Rich gold decoration, also on the irregular opening of the vessel. Manufactory: Bauer Rosenthal & Co / Kronach / Bavaria / Germany Dating: manufactured 1898-1900 Material and technique: porcelain / chinaware / painted / glossy finish Design: Adolf Wilhelm Oppel (1840-1923) Opened a sculptor's studio in Nuremberg in 1899. In 1911 he moved to Sonneberg/Thuringia. The artist became known through his work for the manufacturers Bauer, Rosenthal & Co. KG, Kronach and Philipp Rosenthal & Co. AG, Selb. He also took part in various exhibitions, e.g. at the Paris World Exhibition of 1900, the ceramics show in Leipzig (1901), the art exhibition in Berlin (1902) and the World Exhibition St. Louis (USA / Missouri - 1904). - Adolf Oppel's figure style is classic in the sense of the school of Adolf Hildebrand (1847–1921). In his earlier creative period, Oppel specialized in combining his Art Nouveau figures with vases, centerpieces and bowls. Later on - as part of his work for Rosenthal in Selb - he created fully plastic figures.
