19th century, French
This dish inspired by Far Eastern arts presents a magnificent polychrome decoration. It is signed "TH.DECK". It was made around 1878. Théodore Deck is one of the most important French ceramists of the late 19th century. He was awarded several prizes at the World Fairs and became the director of the Sèvres factory in 1887. The Musée des Arts Décoratifs in Paris conserves a similar dish also depicting flowers. Hibiscus is a family of plants from tropical regions. The quisqualis species originates from China. Both plants reflect the taste for the exotic in the decorative arts of this period.
