Royal Copenhagen Art Nouveau bird of paradise bowl by Theodor Madsen 753 376 dated approximately 1901
|Royal Copenhagen Art Nouveau bird of paradise bowl by Theodor Madsen 753 376 dated approximately 1901. From the Royal Copenhagen web site the mark indicates a date between 1889-1922. We've identified this to be designed by Theodor Madsen (1880-1965). We've tried to find out as much as we can about Theodor Madsen. Theodor Madsen was a sculptor. He was apprenticed as a modelmaker at Royal Copenhagen, educated at the Royal Academy of Art 1898-1902, and worked for Royal Copenhagen as an independent artist making designs from 1896 to 1935, mainly animals and birds. This piece is believed to be dated to 1901. It is absolutely delightful with its wavy trail of ivy and what might be described as a bird of paradise (at least a bird with a long tail) forming the handle.
