The Zsolnay Store

Item number 192. A rare Zsolnay double-necked vase. Designed for the Turin Exhibition of 1911 by Moric Pogany. Made of Porcelain Faience with metallic eosin glazed. The glaze on this vase reflects the best obtainable at the factory. Along with this vase were designed garden seats, smaller vases and cachepots in a similiar theme. The translation of the text on the vase reads: " There is strength in morality, there is morality in power, to shoulder fate's sad burden and not be discouraged kisses, love, poetry and singing birds have been created." Size: 18.25" tall. Condition: this is a very heavy vase and each corner has been repaired. This vase has Zsolnay factory incised marks (form # 8445). A similiar form was pictured on page 172 of "Panorama: Architecture and Applied Arts in Hungary 1896-1916" and exhibited in Kyoto and Tokyo in 1995 1996. Documented in literature (catalogues, price guides, etc.)

The Blue Metallic Eosin Glaze is quite uncommon

The design of this vase reflects the design of the pavillion at the Turin Exhibition.
