This is a rare presentation of the Daum summer woodland design with the acid etched design covering the outside of the bowl with details in opaque and transparent enamels.

The bowl is especially beautiful and dramatic as the design is also visible from the inside of the bowl which presents a totally different interpretation of the design that is not possible to see in the more normal vase presentations.

In addition to this wonderfully effective display of the design, the bowl is a very naturalistic organic shape that we have never seen before.
