A striking mid-century piece, this large West German Georg Schmider bowl features a satin white body animated by a cheerful incised surface design of interlocking circles with pops of red, blue, orange and yellow where the circles intersect. This piece was designed by Anneliese Beckh, who designed a few other pieces with the same circle pattern.
This piece would make a great fruit or serving bowl, but is also lovely just for display. It would look fantastic at the center of a mid-century table or sideboard, or in a minimalist kitchen--a perfect mix of classic and playful.
The bowl is is marked on bottom: "LO58" (in relief) and stamped "Made in West Germany" and "1786." It measures 11" across at widest and 2 1/4" tall, and l is in good vintage condition, with some light scratching to its surface and sides, as documented in photos.
