Danish Art Nouveau

Ipsen Danish Art Nouveau Vase with Metallic Gold Dripping Glaze (LEO Design)

Though it’s not English, I bought the piece, shown above, from a British collector (a long-time source for goodies in my shop).  It is made by Ipsen, the Danish ceramics workshop, and is dated 1911.  It has the gentle, feminine curves of the Art Nouveau, but is energized with a dripping metallic over-glaze of silver and gold.  One can see hints of the Art Deco period to come.
