Garniture of five vases, Theo Colenbrander, 1886

Garniture of five vases, Theo Colenbrander, 1886

earthenware, h 66cm More details

Theo Colenbrander was the artistic mastermind of the Rozenburg earthenware factory in The Hague. His designs exhibit great freedom in both form and decoration. The slender, ribbed shape of these vases recalls bamboo. The ornamentation is modern: abstractly rendered floral and plant motifs in bright colours. Their shapes, however, are quite old-fashioned. It is a garniture (set) of five vases for display atop a cabinet.

On display in room 1.18
