THE RAT 2020

  • €4,200.00
  • The rat, distinguished among the Asian Zodiac signs by its trickery and mischief is hiding himself under a bowl. Its delicate body is crafted by hand, using the blowtorch technique, and is being magnified by the upper cut through which it can be observed. It is laying on a millefiori background composing several diamond shapes colored with pastel shades and symbolizing sweets. It is indeed out o f greediness that the rat slipped under the bowl, represented by a white enamel calotte lined by green crystal being a reminiscence of Asian celadon ceramics. The techniques such as the complex cuts and the bevel cut designing the bowl’s decoration make this paperweight a both technical and poetic piece. One can’t help but flip it to track the malicious animal down at last. This prestige version of The Rat paperweight differs from the previous one in several ways. A 24 carat gold collar draws the bowl’s decoration A second one is acid ornament engraved and decorated with gold all around the millefiori background, reminding the traditional porcelain iconography.
