# 5365. A Secession Zsolnay Vase designed by Sándor Hidasy Pilló. Form # 8692 with a production year 1913 (the last year he worked at the Zsolnay Factory). Painted Zsolnay Factory mark and incised form number 8692. Size: 6" tall and 4.5" diameter at the widest. Hidasy designed decors using panthers and leopards for other vases. Sándor Hidasy Pilló was born in 1886. Artist, craftsman, painter. Studied as a painter at the National Hungarian Royal School of Applied Arts, between 1901 and 1905, then worked in the employment of the Zsolnay Factory from 1906-1913. As a designer of early Art Deco forms and creator of geometrical decor, by the year 1910, he was acknowledged as a significant designer to the point that he was able to sign pieces with his signature, something that the Zsolnay Factory discouraged. Three circles depict a cat encircled by silver eosin dots. Marbled and Eosin and glazes are used to color circles, triangles and Secession stylized decorations. The Eosin glazes include green, gold, red, blue, and purple. Well defined yet subtle metallic Eosin colors highlight this decor. Condition: base edge flake, well restored, encompass two triangles decorations. A similar decor is pictured on page 142 of Richard Stattners' fine book "Zsolnay Masterpieces of Hungarian Art Nouveau" Price: $4,000.00.
