German Bisque For Sale on 1stDibs

Choose from an assortment of styles, material and more with respect to the German bisque you’re looking for at 1stDibs. A German bisque — often made from ceramic, porcelain and metal — can elevate any home. Your living room may not be complete without a German bisque — find older editions for sale from the 18th Century and newer versions made as recently as the 20th Century. A German bisque, designed in the Mid-Century Modern, Modern or Art Nouveau style, is generally a popular piece of furniture. You’ll likely find more than one German bisque that is appealing in its simplicity, but AK Kaiser, Hutschenreuther and Rosenthal produced versions that are worth a look.

How Much is a German Bisque?

Prices for a German bisque can differ depending upon size, time period and other attributes — at 1stDibs, they begin at $120 and can go as high as $8,850, while the average can fetch as much as $475.

Finding the Right Decorative Objects for You

Every time you move into a house or an apartment — or endeavor to refresh the home you’ve lived in for years — life for that space begins anew. The right home accent, be it the simple placement of a decorative bowl on a shelf or a ceramic vase for fresh flowers, can transform an area from drab to spectacular. But with so many materials and items to choose from, it’s easy to get lost in the process. The key to styling with decorative objects is to work toward making a happy home that best reflects your personal style. 

Ceramics are a versatile addition to any home. If you’ve amassed an assortment of functional pottery over the years, think of your mugs and salad bowls as decorative objects, ideal for displaying in a glass cabinet. Vintage ceramic serveware can pop along white open shelving in your dining area, while large stoneware pitchers paired with woven baskets or quilts in an open cupboard can introduce a rustic farmhouse-style element to your den.

Translucent decorative boxes or bowls made of an acrylic plastic called Lucite — a game changer in furniture that’s easy to clean and lasts long — are modern accents that are neutral enough to dress up a coffee table or desktop without cluttering it. If you’re showcasing pieces from the past, a vintage jewelry box for displaying your treasures can spark conversation. Where is the jewelry box from? Is there a story behind it?

Abstract sculptures or an antique vessel for your home library can draw attention to your book collection and add narrative charm to the most appropriate of corners. There’s more than one way to style your bookcases, and decorative objects add a provocative dynamic. “I love magnifying glasses,” says Alex Assouline, global vice president of luxury publisher Assouline, of adding one’s cherished objects to a home library. “They are both useful and decorative. Objects really elevate libraries and can also make them more personal.”

To help with personalizing your space and truly making it your own, find an extraordinary collection of decorative objects on 1stDibs.
