Glazed Ceramic Head of Woman with Painted Veil, Attributed to Vally Wieselthiel

About

Beautiful ceramic head of a woman with painted veil, white base with colored glaze, attributed to Vally Wieselthier from the "Wiener Werkstatte". This was a group of architects, artists and artisans founded in 1903 with the idea of creating original daily use and decorative objects with a highly aesthetic sense derived from the "Secession" Artistic Movement in Vienna. Valerie (Vally) Wieselthier was born in Vienna in 1895 and enrolled in 1914 the Vienna School of Applied Arts. She joined the Werkstatte in 1917 by invitation from one of her teachers. She developed a unique style in ceramics sophisticated and playful at the same time conveying some of the optimism and gayness of the Art Deco style. She moved permanently to New York in 1932 where she continued working on her own as well as collaborating with some ceramic industries in the US. She died in 1945. Her work is very well known and sought after.
