Meissen extremely rare Art Nouveau vase by Otto Eduard Voigt, c.1905

Finely decorated with three lustrous enamel roundels of peacock feather detail reserved on a varying incised and raised surface, painted with high-temperature colours and heightened with stylised gilt detail, signed O.Voigt. A very complicated combination of techniques.
Otto Eduard Voigt (1870 - 1949) worked at Meissen 1896 - 1932. From 1904, he worked in the 'underglaze' department. Many of his designs were also used in the production of tea, coffee and dinner services. The signing of pieces during this period was very rarely allowed, and usually restricted to unique items or those intended for exhibitions.
16.5 cm high.
