An exceptionally fine large Iznik-style vase, Cantagalli, Italy, 19th C.

This lot was sold on 2023-06-30 and is no longer available

H.: 56,5 cm

By the 19th C., the introduction of the studio potter, led by the Frenchman Joseph-Théodore Deck, propelled a fascination with reviving Iznik-style pottery in Europe. Deck’s successful experiments with Iznik went on to inspire Ulisse and Giuseppe Cantagalli to produce their own works which paired the characteristic polychrome Saz-style decoration with large, un-Ottoman forms (Denny, 2004, pp. 221-22). The impressive scale of this vase was most likely drawn from a vase in a royal Italian collection published by Deck in 1887 (Deck, 1887, fig.11, p. 26).
