A friendly vase in the form of a fish, made by the celebrated designer Just Anderson (1884 - 1943), Denmark. The vase was made in the 1930s during the Art Deco period. The vase is a stylized open-mouth fish rendered with abstraction and organic form. The mouth of the vase is the mouth of the fish. The vase has a bronze look to it and has a very solid, heavy feel. The fish vase is made out of Disko, a metal alloy that was invented by Just. Disko Metal is an alloy of lead and antimony. Just Anderson named this mixed metal after the Disko Bay of Greenland, where he spent his childhood. Disko was used by Just to produce bronze-looking items. It was cheaper to produce than real bronze. In the early 1900s Just began studying decorative sculpture at the Royal Academy of Art in Greenland. Later, he studied at the School of Danish Crafts. He was known for his incredible designs and worked closely with the silversmith Georg Jensen. You can see some similarities in the forms found in their work, and their organic Art Deco design. The fish is marked at the base with JUST in a triangle, 1389 and Denmark. The vase measures 5 x 3.75 x 4 inches. The fish has a deep brown patinated bronze with hist of dark green. It is in great condition with a nice finish. This fish vase is fine example of Just design and his incredible craftsmanship.
