Description


A late 19th century Swiss Thun (Thoune) decorative plate. These items were made as tourist ware by numerous small potteries in the Heimberg region of Switzerland and were most popular during the late 19th and early 20th century. Some potteries are still active in the region. The plates are intricately made with slip decoration and a majolica type petrol iridescence. This example is a little unusual in having a largely sky blue colour. This example has a handpainted central image which is script marked 'Schanau', this is probably for the Island Lake more commonly referred to as Schwanau (although Schanau is a recognised surname, so it could alternatively be a signature). The reverse has an Thoune script mark incised into the slip panel. The foot rim has pierced holes for wall hanging.

Condition


Some glaze chips around the rim (largely to the underside) and glaze chips to the foot rim. There is an unglazed patch to the reverse where it missed the top coat of the iridescent glaze (caused during production). Small losses Read more
