French Art Nouveau Lotus Metal Dish

36.00

Beautiful pieces that can serve in a multitude of ways, always catch my eye. This one is an art nouveau small metal dish with little feet. It is has lovely lotus flowers and pods as its carved design. So many meanings behind the lotus: purity and good fortune being two of them. (I have another small lotus dish made of pewter in the shop this month.) The flowing scallop edge adds to the overall feel. Organic, simple, and French.

I had a conversation with the elderly owner of this piece at a brocante in Gers, France. She had used it as a catch all on her dresser. Her mother used it for sewing notions. There are so many places in your home for this sweet bit of art. I love the color and the patina. It is well aged uniformly over the entire piece. There is a tiny scratch on the bottom, revealing the base metal, near the marking. I only noticed it when I was examining the dish closely for condition. Please note the last photograph.

Like most of my finds, ok . . . all of my finds, she is difficult to let go. But I have a house to find, buy, and restore. The selling of this beautiful early 20th-century metal dish is part of how I will make my dreams happen. From my home to yours . . .
