Large and exceptional Zsolnay Pottery bowl with a woman holding a fishing net with a wave at the end. Striking eosin glaze. MINT CONDITION.  No chips, cracks, damage or repair of any kind.  Bottom marked with new factory mark used since 1996.  Bowl is 11" tall and 14" wide.  Zsolnay ceramics are noted for the use of the eosin process which was introduced in 1893, this process results in a light red iridescence of the first prepared hue, hence the term eosin (Greek eos, flush of dawn). Different eosin colors and processes were developed over time. The eosin-based iridescence became a favourite of art nouveau and Jugendstil.  The secret eosin glaze renders porcelain to appear iridescent metallic, in different colours that change with the angle of reflection. Typical colours include shades of green, red, blue, and purple.

Excellent. This is the second item I've bought from you in three months, and you're doing great!

Love the sales! Keep them coming! Usually receive my order quickly and the items are always packed safely. My only suggestion would be to not use the styrofoam peanuts anymore as they are hard to recycle and bad for the environment. Thanks!
