# 5834. A large Cachepot. Form #8028 and decor # 5290. Described as: "Elephant-head vase with exotic panorama, 1909-1910. Form by Mihaly Kapas Nagy. Size: 9.7" x 21.9" x 6.9". Round raised factory mark of the era and indistinct incised form numbers. Condition: 2 of the tusks have tip losses and the other two have old repairs; the trunk of one of the elephants has been repaired. There is an underside base crack which continues up each side of the body of the vase; there is a bubbling of the glaze over approximately 30% of the body of the vase. This glaze imperfection was created at the factory firing and the factory still issued this piece for sale. Despite the issues with this piece, it is a rare form and would be welcomed in a collection. An identical form is pictured on page 222 of "Zsolnay Art Pottery The Guygyi Collection" Price on request.
