Neo-Classicism Meets Mid-Century
Never ones to rest on our laurels...we prefer to present an unexpected mix, not strictly mid-century and certainly not minimalist. Amid some of our latest Scandinavian ceramic treasures is a white marble bust of an idealized young Roman (Emperor Maximinus perhaps?) by famed German sculptor Otto Poertzel (1876-1963) From his early turn of the century classical period, this handsome man measures 16" to the top of his valiant head.
