Geranium Fantasy

# 300. A Zsolnay Secession or Art Nouveau era vase. Size: app. 9" or 23 cm tall. Marked: "Zsolnay Pecs" and the form number "6466" and a factory tower mark dating this vase between 1915 and 1920. This form we believe was originally cast in Gres, a very heavy stone like material. This later casting of this form by the Zsolnay factory is of standard clay with the difference from other similar forms being an overall Eosin Glaze. The background is a very metallic blue Eosin with the Geranium leaves a very faint Green Eosin with predominant ochre colors. The flowers are very red ranging from bright to dark maroon. Condition: there may or may not be an over painted bottom rim flake as noted in the detailed images. We have seen this form several times over the years: this glaze is exceptional and rare. We do not know who the artist was that worked for the Zsolnay factory that designed this form. It is very high style, utilizing the concept of flowers and leaves to 'create' the form. P.O.R.
