The cherubs created by Powolny - many of them on behalf of Wiener Keramik (WK) - are much sought by knowledgeable collectors of Art Nouveau Ceramics due to fine quality of modelling as well as due to lovely and punchy appearance. - The cherubs presented here belongs to the subject of four season's figurines which were manufactured at the Wiener Keramik (Vienna ceramics) and distributed by the Wiener Werkstätte.
