Majolica Asparagus Dish, Late 19th C

late 19th C
9.5 × 25 × 38cm

If there is one vegetable most associated with spring, it is the asparagus. If there is one country most associated with the asparagus in spring, it is Germany. And this show-stopping, rare asparagus serving dish just does that: it is instantly evocative of Germany’s love affair (understandably an obsession) with the white vegetable and the much-anticipated yearly ‘Spargelzeit’. Any bona fide style-savvy ‘tablescaper’ will relish the addition of this gaily Majolica ware for their ever-growing revival collection.

Late 19th C. Twin-handled base with textured leaves painted green, aqua and brown and attached raised, curved cradle of 12 asparagus spears painted cream, brown and lilac.

2kg. Excellent condition. Small chip on the back on the edge of a curved leaf, only visible on the reverse.
