# 4864. A Heliosine Ware pottery Art Nouveau Vase. Circa 1910. 21.5" tall and a 5.5" square base. Marked under the glaze: Heliosine Ware Austria with a crown. Incised Numbers "21039" and "3". We believe that the crown mark is for the firm of Ernst Wahliss. They were a retailer and maunfacturer, opening a shop in Vienna in 1836 with branches in London (1888) Berlin (1896); they were agents for Reissner, Stellmacher & Kessel and Zsolnay. The firm was renamed Alexander Porcelain Works Ernst Wahliss in 1905. This information is from Marks and Monograms of the Modern Movement by Malcolm Haslam which is an excellent reference book (ISBN 0 7188 2291 9) Condition: two very long cracks on oposite sides of the very tall vase from the top down about 8". Rubbing to the dull metallic glaze. A very large example of this most uncommon line of Art Nouveau Ceramics. Price: $950.00.
Red Line denotes the crack line.
