Coffeepot


Description Provenance Inscription Credit
Description The three pieces of this coffee service have similar decoration in Fedor Rückert's most subdued style. Highly abstract botanical motifs, including cloud berries, pine trees, and garlands, are rendered in his low-keyed palette of deep and pale olive, beige, brown, violet, deep and pale blue, and some white. To allow for the extra height of the coffee pot, an extra band of blue seed pods and olive colored leaves has been added at the bottom. Ivory rings provide insulation for the handles and top knobs.
Provenance Acquired by Jean M. Riddell, Washington, D.C.; by bequest to Walters Art Museum, 2010.
