Why this is a
Masterpiece

An article of this type is unique in the collection because it is the only one of its kind and is distinguished by fashionable reproduction of the shell-shape and by delicate polychrome ornamentation made in the enamel technique. Light blue, pink and yellow friezes covered by dense decoration of plants and blossoms lay out on the white background. Not only the functional aspect of the dish is well-weighed, but it is also visually attractive and therefore pleasant to use, featuring thereby its owner's social status – being able to obtain not only useful, but also expressly exquisite things.

History of the Object
From the collection of the Latvian artist Teodors Zalkalns. Special interest in the Oriental art, particularly Chinese and Japanese, is inherent to this collection.
