Antique Historical Designs


# 5394. A Historical Era Monumental Pilgrim flask with bird and flower decoration. Circa 1883. Form # 790. Size: 31.13" x 21.0" x 7.5". Trademark: Painted Zsolnay Factory mark inside on of the four feet. A similar form is pictured in " Zsolnay Art Pottery The Guygyi Collection" on pages 64 and 65. Condition: the finial cap was broken into about 15 sections and reglued (badly) back together. There was considerable gold gilt tracery much of which has been lost. Each side pictures birds: three on one side and 2 on the other. One of the birds is a peacock. This size must have been difficult to cast because of the size and few have survived. P.O.R.

Please note the considerable repair to the final lid; but all the pieces were glued to complete the appearance as it was originally.
