Item # 227. A Zsolnay Pitcher. Late Secession era. Size: 9.5" tall. Condition: minor areas where the glaze did not adhere to the body of the pitcher. No restorations, chips. Marks: round raised factory mark of the era and incised initials: "S F". There is no form number however the form number for this pitcher is 8925. C. 1918. This is late production for the factory. The glaze is reminiscent of a glass box vase pictured on page 7 of Waltraud Neuwirth's "Bluhender Jugendstil" Band 1; described as a "Vase; Joh. Lotz Witwe, Klostermuhle". Glaze in the style of Loetz Papillon glass. The images pictures a silver spotted decoration against a darker silver blue ground. Concerning the incised " S F", we can find no artist who worked at the factory with those initials. The main decoration is a oil spotted metallic eosin silver over a blue metallic eosin background, the raised ribbon decorations are lilac / copper eosin. The glaze on this small pitcher is about as fine as was produced at the Zsolnay factory.
The spot is an tiny area where the glaze did not adhear to the body.
The small line is at the base of the handle and is a firing stress area.
The "S F" incised signature.
