Zsolnay Art Nouveau
The Drawing Room Antiques
Historic Newport Rhode Island
Item number 196. A Zsolnay Vase. Form number 1246. We believe that this form number relates to the Architectural Form Books of the factory. We date this item between 1910 and 1915. Severe Vienna Secession Style. Size: 12" tall. Glaze: blue runny glaze over a green glaze, gold highlights. Condition: as noted in the photos there is a glaze loss plus in several areas the glaze did not completely adhere to the surface, hence white undersurface shows through. This is a singularly and unusual Zsolnay item. We believe that it may have a funereally connection, perhaps even meant to be used as a funeral ash urn. Architectural forms designed at the Zsolnay factory were created by some of the most renowned designers and architects of the Austro-Hungarian Empire. This severe example probably reflects the decor of the interior of a church, chapel or mausoleum. Price: $750.00.
