# 5398. A High Style Art Nouveau Vase made at the Zsolnay Factory of Pecs Hungary. Form Number 5475. Circa 1899. Size: 22.5" tall. Marks: hand scribed form number "5475" and the letter "M"; suspect tha there was a painted mark in the center of the underside that has been worn away. Though there is no factory zsolnay mark, the incised form number and the letter "M" without a doubt indicate that this extraordinary vase was made at the Zsolnay factory. Condition: This vase has had restoration to the upper lip decoration. Hard to tell how much, the overpainting was very well executed. With two world wars and a cultural revolution, much Zsolnay has had restoration that comes on the market today. This vase came to us from a private collection from the South of France. Price: $22,500.00.
