A Niedermayer porcelain urn with "fleurs en terrasse"

Of Neoclassical form with two handles, fired in two parts and screw-mounted. Finely painted with a continuous band of Continental wildflowers on gilt ground. Blue bindenschild mark, year stamp 826, dreher's no. 59. H 33.5. D 26.5 cm.
Vienna, Niedermayer manufactory, fired in 1826, decor attributed to Joseph Nigg.

Joseph Nigg (1782 - 1863), to whom the decor of this vase is attributed, was the most prominent flower painter of his time. His decor is inimitable and unmistakeable. He depicts his flowers closely packed and in their fullest stage shortly before they begin to wilt against the gilt ground developed at Niedermayer in the 1820s.
