- Gallery Text
Like many late nineteenth-century ceramics, this plate was intended for display. The handpainted decoration bears the hallmarks of the art nouveau style that dominated the decorative arts in Europe at the end of the nineteenth century. Characterized by naturalistic imagery, asymmetrical compositions, and bold colors, this style catered to the taste for organic, hand-wrought forms that arose in response to the Industrial Revolution and the increasing standardization of domestic goods.
