Amphora Wasp Vase
Bohemia, circa 1895
10" high

This is my favorite wasp vase. In my estimation, the spiral handles and reticulated mouth set this one apart from others by Amphora. Art Nouveau in high nature gear!

You can see two other wasp examples in the dramatic Amphora video on YouTube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fZocaTgTtl4 (or search for "Amphora Pottery"). There is also an Amphora Facebook page at facebook.com/amphora.pottery with many photos and information about this pottery.

    Agreed. This wasp is a cut above!

    This is a beautiful amphora. It took me a while to realize it is a wasp in the design. But of course I own my wasp amphora by accident! and didn't realize what I had on my hands! Nice collection!

    I realized that my previous photo was the back side, which doesn't have as much gold application. Now you can see the front in all its glory.

    Hello glenfield,
    I picked this up via an auction house so you could say I paid fair market value. I'd be happy to discuss the value of Amphora wasp vases by email. Please send me a note at algreen@live.com.

    Hi Susan,
    Maybe you included a period at the end of the address (after the .com). Please try again -- algreen@live.com -- and let's see if it works. I get messages from Europe so I don't know why yours would not be accepted. If this doesn't work maybe we can use Facebook. I administer the Amphora Facebook page so you can send me a message that way: http://www.facebook.com/amphora.pottery. Pardon me for being cautious but I'd rather you try to contact me first.

    I added a close-up of a wasp. Look at the artistic application of gold. That is one of the reasons Amphora is in the ceramics hall of fame.
