Michael Powolny (Judenburg 1871 - 1954 Vienna) is one of the best-known ceramics artists of Viennese Art Nouveau and, with his childlike and cheerful putti figures from his "Wiener Keramik", had a decisive influence on the aesthetics of the decorative small sculptures of his time.

The large, perfectly preserved garden vase dates back to a design by Powolny for the Wienerberger company in 1916/17 (model number 4121). This massive and at the same time beautifully shaped object could decorate the bourgeois interior in its function as a plant cachepot or could be elevated to a "baluster vase" as sculptural decoration for the house or garden.

Powolny adorns his sturdy vase with his characteristic putti figures, which stand in stark contrast to the blue background both because of their relief and their ivory-white glaze.
