Vase, ca. 1920–30
Zimmermann’s vases and bowls draw inspiration from Asia and Egypt. The form of this bowl is similar to designs for Japanese plume fans and Chinese-influenced silver by the Kalo Shops of Chicago. The vase’s green patination suggests ancient metal vessels and examples by Viennese designer Dagobert Peche, connecting Zimmermann’s work to antiquity, Asia, and contemporary Europe, especially Vienna.
