Antique baby blue canister with handpainted flowers. The organic, sinuous lines and plant motifs indicate that this is probably from the Jugendstil era in Germany or Austria (1895 - 1910), a style that was known as Art Nouveau in France. Works perfectly well for storing Grieß (Semolina) but I would recommend using it as a vase or plant pot. A truly rare and special piece.
Marked on the base: “Olga. 1.” and “10689 26”
Height: 22 cm
This piece has numerous grazes and shallow chips, indicative of its age. See third pic for example.
