Elegance in porcelain

Karner's majestic Athena

 

white-glazed Allach porcelain Athena figurine made by the coveted, SS-owned manufacturer, Allach-Munchen GmBH.

The Athena dressed in a long chiton and helmet, (Athena is rarely depicted carryng her helmet). Tall, and elegant, the Athena figurine holds an olive branch in her right hand, symbolising peace. In her left hand, a column representing culture and civilisation. The figurine stands on a white-glazed porcelain base, which bears the Munich coat-of-arms in relief. The backside of the base shows a dedication in relief; 'TAG DER DEUTSCHEN KUNST 1938'. To the underneath,  Allach's, green runes, octagon-shaped trademark. The name 'Prof.TH.Karner' impressed. A circular paper Drambuie Collection inventory disc attached to one side of the figure.

Condition report: Perfect condition.

Provenance: The Drambuie Collection (assembled by the Drambuie Liqueur Company), 1980s. Properties from this important corporate collection (including the Allach Porcelain Athena), were sold in 2005. One collection since.

Notes: The Greek 'warrior godess' Athena,symbolises wisdom, courage, law and justice. Athena is also known as the 'companion of heroes' and represents the more strategic side of war. 

The white-glaze porcelain is possibly a metaphor for  'Athena Parthenos,' the 'virgin Athena' associated with restrained values; simplicity, purity and modesty.

Price: SOLD
