Large and exceptional Zsolnay Pottery bowl with a woman holding a fishing net with a wave at the end. Striking eosin glaze.

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.
