Style/technique: Art Nouveau
Manufacturer: Sherwin &
Dimensions: 3" x 6"
Date: circa 1908
A stylised floral design having a somewhat
gothic feel made with the rarely used Cuerda
Seca technique. The technique uses a painted
outline but differs from other methods in that
the medium for the line was oil rather than
water based. The oily line resisted the water
based glazes and helped to keep the colours well
defined. The outline's profile is usually lower
than in tube line decoration indeed the glazes
may be thicker than the outline.
Verso very clean, embossed Sherwin trade mark
etc, painted pattern number.
Very fine condition just some rubbing to the
green where the glaze is thickest.
Condition: Very fine
Price: £55 (approx $91)
