A beautiful African woman carries a jug of water in this enchanting terracotta figure by the famed Goldscheider. Entitled Sakka-ha, or she who quenches the thirst, this marvelous work was first created by the Goldschieder studios circa 1895, and exemplifies the Orientalist style in which this highly respected maker excelled. Exquisitely detailed and finely crafted, this figure exudes elegance and quiet dignity.

In 1885, Friedrich Goldscheider founded the Goldscheider Manufactory and Majolica Factory in Vienna and it became the most influential ceramic firm in Austria. Goldscheider achieved worldwide renown as one of the most remarkable and prolific pottery firms of the 19th and 20th centuries and succeeded in setting the standards and style for Art Deco ceramics by employing both well-established sculptors and innovative up-and-comers. The firm was renowned for their starkly realistic and fluid designs that received numerous prestigious awards throughout Goldscheider's lifetime, including the bronze medal at the 1889 Paris International Exhibition.

Sakka-ha is featured in Stephane Richemond's 1999 book Terres cuites orientalistes et africanistes 1860-1940, page 75.
