Unlimited Edition, Pieke Bergmans “a unique production of unique vases”. Unlimited Edition vase collection is a good example of generating individuality using techniques of mass production: by extruding clay through a variety of templates and cut points, each is produced the same way, but looks different.
The 19th century saw an explosion in cheaply produced printed posters and adverts, and the development of writing styles and graphic techniques that have influenced advertising ever since. The combination of varied and colourful typography, arresting imagery, short exclamatory sentences, and occasionally surreal content, was typical of the Victorian period.
*HEAVILY ARMORED GUNBOAT ~ "Andre the Giant" is in a keystone in the collection, a masterpiece by M rkllin. What makes it exceptional is that is such an early + pristine example of its kind. The delicacy of its styling, hand-painteing + detailing would soon give way to the Weissenberg-type ship that lent itself to easier mass-production. But it was toys like this that gave M rklin its worldwide reputation at the best. Est. $150-250,000
