An Art Deco, painted metal pedestal bowl or compote by WMF decorated with black and gold geometric patterns on a turquoise bowl and black base. The Ikora series refers to an unique method of chemically treating and heating the surface of the metal. The pieces were hand finished so despite being mass produced, each item appears as a one of a kind object. The Ikora line was developed by the Contemporary Decorative Products Department (NKA) under the direction of Hugo Debach.
