Art Deco Black & Gold Shaped Metal Vase
The sheer boldness of the shape of this vase is quite powerful and gives it a sculptural presence. In addition, the contrast between the sheen of the black and gold finish is accentuated by the unique treatment of the glazed surface. The vase has a simple urn form that is amplified by its extravagant shape that makes reference to the antique classical form of the "volute" originally seen on an Ionic capital. An updated use of ancient classical motifs and forms was an attribute of the Art Deco period in architecture, furnishings and artwork.
Note: this is a hand made, hand-painted item, therefore, it will have some colour variation, which is part of its charm.
