Margit Tevan Ash Tray

Ref: 13004

Sold.

A small ashtray with rural weaving scene to the centre.

Hungarian 1950s.

Made by Hungarian silversmith Margit Tevan, marked Tevan to the base.

Margit studied at the Academy of Applied Arts in Budapest and was tutored some of the most famous goldsmiths of the time, Richard Zutt and Francis Kiss. 

The influence of the Bauhaus school is evident in her early work. 

Her artistic development was drawn towards an archaic romanticism, influenced by Romanesque art, widely seen in her friezes which decorate the many cigarette boxes and plates she produced.

Most of the objects she produced during her life time are hand hammered silver-leafed copper but she did work in silver, bronze and copper also.

One can find traces of references to both Jewish and Christian culture in her work. She continued her production during Communism where she kept her poetic register with smaller works.

An interesting and I feel undervalued 20th century artist.
