A finely made and stylish mid-century Rosenthal porcelain lidded sugar bowl decorated with a scene from Mozart’s opera Die Zauberflöte (the magic flute) designed by renowned Danish born artist Bjorn Wiinblad (1918-2006). This finely made white porcelain lidded pot is of round egg shape standing on a narrow round unglazed foot rim with a white glazed base and with the cover raised and pointed in oriental style with a small raised ball top. The cover has a matt unglazed finish and portrays the capture or Pamina with the figure of Pamina surrounded by three seated guards dressed in Middle-Eastern wear with one holding up a sword. The scene is relief molded and interspersed with floral, leaf and other designs. The base of the pot is marked in gold with titles, facsimile signature and Rosenthal marks.

Provenance: Acquired from the British Art Market.

The sugar pot is offered in good original condition with minimal wear. From a collection of Bjorn Wiinblad related items.
