Semi-Nude Female Carrying Bowl

 

HEIGHT: 10 inches

VALUE RANGE: $150 – $200

Kent Art Ware’s Semi-Nude Female Carrying a Bowl resulted from this 1920s photograph of famed Russian ballet dancer and choreographer, Vaslav Nijisky. Japan’s Moriyama Pottery, the maker of Kent Art Ware, had their own Moriyama underglaze marked versions, a light mauve and blue mirror-image pair and one fully painted with a bright red shirt. There was even a poorly “Made In Japan” knock-off with an urn instead of the bowl as seen in the last photograph.
