Beautiful HP Austrian porcelain: Art Deco lustreware Bowl w/ 4 Salt Cellars, early 19th c. Moritz Zdekauer blanks; hand decorated & signed by “Harmon” sometime later, probably the 1920s. Iridescent luster interiors, exteriors sport a creamy tan sand-colored glaze. A border of black brackets accent the lovely reddish-orange radishes (or beets?) & their ruffled greens. A trio of ball feet gilded in rich matte gold adds the bling to this design...stunning!

I am a huge fan of American & European handpainted china, and began my own collection as a child when my Scandinavian great-grandmother gave me (& each of her descendants) a handpainted chocolate cup...

:: Condition & Measurements ::

Condition is excellent; other than a bit of gold wearing off the bottom of the bowl's feet, there are no chips, cracks, nicks, crazing, repairs, etc. to any of these pieces; they're in incredible condition.

The salt cellars measure 2 1/8 inches in diameter [5.4cm] and 7/8ths of an inch high [2.25cm]; the 3-footed bowl is about 5.25" in diameter [13.35cm] and 1.5" high [3.8cm].

Maker’s mark stamped in green on underside, “M.Z. Austria” with the crown & double eagle insignia; hand signed by “Harmon”.

:: Care & Handling ::

As with any fragile porcelain, these pieces should never be used in microwaves, and we strongly recommend hand washing with a mild dish soap. Where there is surface crazing, avoid staining by restricting contact with acidic or deeply colored liquids & foods (strong coffee, beets, etc).

Please Note: Vintage and antique dishes were often decorated with glazes containing varying levels of toxic substances, like lead or cadmium. If you have a concern, please research before purchasing. To minimize exposure when using vintage dinnerware, please observe the following precautions: use infrequently; do not expose to high heat, including microwaves, ovens, and dishwashers; avoid contact with acidic foods & liquids, especially if piece is cracked or crazed (slight crackling of the clear overglaze); do not use to store food or liquids; hand wash with a gentle detergent soon after use and allow to air dry.

INTERNATIONAL BUYERS: We love to ship globally; please provide your address for an accurate quote of shipping costs. You must determine your own local customs fees or import taxes, if applicable.

We pack professionally and have a stellar track record when it comes to shipping delicate china; see our feedback or read our blog entry "Pack and Schlep" at www.SusabellaBrownstein.wordpress.com for more details!
