332.  A Soviet Porcelain Salad-Dish 

 
PROBABLY AFTER A PAINTED DESIGN BY RUDOLPH VILDE, STATE PORCELAIN MANUFACTORY, PETROGRAD, 1921
 
8,000-12,000 GBP
 

Height 11 cm, length 32 cm.

Of oval elongated shape, the border decorated with stylised floral ornament against white background with black and gold leaves centering '1921' commemorative ornament and with a matching decor on the outside, on white stand with blue rims, dated, with an obliterated Alexander III mark and blue manufactory marks.

Rudolph Vilde is perhaps most famous for his elaborate soviet propaganda pieces, easily recognisable by their beautiful proportions of clear, white porcelain backgrounds and distinctive, colourful ornament. Born in 1868, Vilde, a graduate of the Baron’s Shtiglitz’s Central School of Technical Drawing, was involved in the pre-revolutionary years with numerous artistic projects, including interior and landscape designs and regularly participated in Imperial Porcelain Manufactory’s contests. In 1906 he became the head of the graphic studio of the Manufactory and of the drawing classes. Lots 331 and 332 are remarkable examples of the artist’s prominent years as a leader of the art studio at the State Porcelain Manufactory (from 1923).
