# 5065. A circa 1900 vase. Form number 6108. Size 8" tall. This vase appears from time to time with this glaze shown as good as it gets. A Mermaid and Merman hang onto to an outcropping of rock with a blue metallic Eosin sea swirling around them. Flashes of green Eosin swirl in the blue Eosin sea. A pair of sea creatures in relief also appear in the water. The figures are covered in white matt glaze while their hair is a yellow/ochr color, the two sea creatures in majolica glazes, one with a faint Eosin highlight; the sea or water is purple / blue metallic Eosin. Interesting that this representation of a mer/creature has fins for each leg. Condition: minor scuffs consistent with use and age. There is a white glazed raised area about 1/8" diameter at the foot which may or may not be a restoration. This form has been documented in books and literature about Zsolnay over the years. Price: $$$$$.
Round raised Zsolnay Factory mark of the era: form number 6108.
