The Zsolnay Store
Item # 307. A period Art Nouveau Zsolnay Architectural Tulip form wall decoration. Marked on the reverse with the incised factory mark and the Architectural Form numbers: " 3320." Circa 1900-1905. Probably part of a larger ensemble and because the material is frost resistent Pyrogranite, it was probably used as an exterior decoration. The main color is Gold Eosin with a little green showing throught. Pre-cast holes (2) so that the form could be mounted. Condition: scuffs and tiny flakes consistent with use and age; no cracks or repairs. The center of the tulip where the top hole has a flake about .25" across and a couple of tiny flakes opposite. The Gold Eosin is very reflective and glows when viewed across a room at a distance. Size: app. 13.5" tall and about 7" wide, about 1.5" thick at the thickest, the form weighs 3 lbs. A rare and beautiful pottery item, easy to display on a shelf or on a wall.
