Description

The following description was prepared by William Gross:

Contemporary Judaica was made by relatively few artists in Germany during the 1920's. One of these was a man by the name of H. Schwed. All of his works are plates with acid etched decoration. These are known in a number of patterns and sizes. This example, for instance, is a Havdalah place. Other plates by the same hand in the Gross Family Collection are a Passover plate, 022.019.001 and a wall decoration plate, 022.002.004.

Heinrich Schwed was born in 1880 in Reichmannsdorf. He worked in Munich, having a shop for signage and other metalwork called "Heinrich Schwed - Schilder- und Metallkunst". Schwed apparently developed this line of Jewish motif plates around 1924. He produced many different models using the acid etching technique. Those that are dated are almost all from 1924 or 1925. He finally emigrated to Buenos Aires in 1938, and died there in 1962.
