# 4818. An unmarked Zsolnay Majolica garden urn. c. 1873. Similar items were exhibited at the Vienna World Exhibition in 1873. This one piece garden urn has a high fired majolica glaze with vibrant exterior colors. The background color is turquoise with polychromed very raised decorations. Size: 15" across (the bowl); 19" across (the handles); 14" tall. Condition: minor flakes to the base; minor edge wear to the relief decorations. The handles have no breaks or restorations. The thinnest part of the bowl section is about 3/4" thick at a minimum. A head of a Baccus figure decorates either side with cornucopia filled with fruit on either side. The figure, cornucopia and ribbons form a strong relief to the body. Comparable in execution and design to Mintons of England.
