One of Andy Warhol's most favorite desserts were large sundaes topped with fruit, sauces and syrups, which he often depicted in his works. Besides numerous drawings, a TV advertisement exists, which was created in 1968 for the Schrafft's restaurant chain showing a sundae with a huge maraschino cherry against a background of color bars.

The porcelain box and cover is in very good condition with minimal signs of wear.

The porcelain manufacturer was established in 1879 as a family business by Philipp Rosenthal. Rosenthal is known for pioneering efforts in product design and worldwide success in design shops. Through collaborations with designers and artists, an impressive line of products arose - today seen as classic pieces.

Andy Warhol (1928-1987)
Andy Warhol, founder and leading figure of the American Pop Art, was born in 1928 as a son of a Russian family in Pennsylvania. He began his career as an artist by creating advertising graphics. Already in 1956, he presented his graphic works at the Museum of Modern Art. In the early 1960s Warhol began experimenting with different techniques and started focusing on typically American objects of the consumer society, as for example Campbell’s soup cans or Coca Cola bottles. In 1962 Warhol started with his series of portraits of famous stars, such as Marilyn Monroe or Elvis Presley, who were then at the height of their career. His renowned studio ‘The Factory’ was a meeting point for internationally successful artists, actors and musicians. As early as the 1970s galleries started exhibiting Warhol’s work, which is now part of some of the most famous collections, such as the Modern Museum of Art in New York, the Tate Modern in London and the d’Art Moderne in Paris.(nlu)
