19th Century Majolica Stool by Gustavsberg Factory


This stool realized by The Gustavsberg Factory, in the shape of a tree trunk is a manifesto of the virtuosity and eclecticism of the ceramists of the second half of the 19th century. It also bears witness to a new attraction for naturalism, a trend which developed in the 19th century and which sought to "reproduce nature by bringing it to its maximum power and intensity". Indeed, it is a glazed ceramic seeking to give the illusion of a tree trunk. Made from a single piece, this stool presents an unprecedented technical mastery. The treatment of bright colors reveals a certain dexterity in working shades to restore depth and patterns. This craft technique shows the great care taken in execution. A porcelain factory was established at Gustavsberg in 1825 by Johan Herman Ohman on the site of a two hundred year old Stockholm brickworks. The production of bone china in the English style began in 1863 using clay imported from Cornwall. For more than 100 years, the firm produced high quality functional table wares and porcelain figures. Two small gripping handles on the sides of the stool. Signed under the stool.
