Ducks marching through River Reeds

# 5457. A Zsolnay cachepot; form number 6203 - round raised factory mark: circa 1900. . This design was probably created by Mihály Kapás Nagy 1864-1943. Artist, craftsman, sculptor, from 1888 to 1942. With small interruptions, he was employed by the Zsolnay Factory as an artist-craftsman and sculpture. He was one of the artist teaching at the technical school for ceramics run by the Zsolnay factory. His job was to design and execute sample pieces. He designed many plastically decorated models manufactured in high numbers. Four ducks surround the cachepot walking through reeds and river plants. Size: 12" across / 12" tall and the base is 8" across. Green, gold, blue eosin glazes and majolica glazes used for the duck bills and feet. Condition: A crack across the outside of the entire base with glaze lines showing inside and outside the cachepot up either side meandering for over 8"; a restored edge repair to the lip. Despite its condition, this is a rare form of which we know of no comparison. Price: $12,500.00.
