  1. This piece is a stew of exciting things going on.
  2. I am commenting again because this piece should have even more loves from the Collectors Weekly community.
  3. Now those are glaze drips! Color combo is also stellar.
  4. Kahler has grown on me. I would like to see some pieces in person so I can truly get a feel for it.
  5. Thanks for the compliment, ho2cultcha. I don't know much about Germany so I can't answer your question about a geranium craze around 1930. Apparently, Zsolnay of Hungary thought the geranium was wor...
  6. I posted a better photo.
  7. I second cogito's statement.
  8. Love the hoarfrost glaze. Reminds me of a wintry day.
  9. Simply fab.
  10. The sake flask is killer.
  11. How did I miss this? So very cool.
  12. A beauty.
  13. Thank you Elisabethan and surfdub66 and everyone else for the loves.
  14. Thank you for the loves and comments, all. Freiheit, Amphora did a series of vases that collectors have labeled the Klimt series. Amphora and Klimt were contemporaries, likely quite aware of each ot...
  15. Vetraio, Vase delivered today--it does not disappoint. The company mark appears to match the one used 1914-23. And it appears that Mycock dated it 1919.
  16. Thank you Elisabethan and PhilDavid.
  17. What an expressive face. And the eyes are trippy.
  18. That is just cool looking.
  19. Thanks for the comments and loves all.
  20. Check this vase out, Sean. I believe it has the same mark. Your vase and this vase sure look like they c...
  21. 1919 is my guess at the moment. If I find anything new once I inspect it, I'll let you know.
  22. Posted the mark, vetraio. Thanks aghcollect and Sean.
  23. The vase is in transit to me so all I have is a photo of the bottom. All I can make out is an impressed "Lancastrian" and "England" and Mycock's lettered mark with 19 painted above it and what I beli...
  24. Thank you, art.pottery.
  25. Peasejean55, please let us know what you think if you go.
  26. Nice to hear that a first rate ceramist admires it, fledermaus. Thank you.
  27. Thanks to all for the nice comments. Peasejean55, I am happy to find someone that can claim this as a fine part of their local heritage. I wish I could visit the museums, such as the one in Manchest...
  28. I hope it's obvious that I was being tongue-in-cheek.
  29. Gorgeous.
  30. Thank you for the nice comments everyone.
  31. I added new photos to show more sides of this vase.
  32. That is gorgeous.
  33. The question is what are you planning to discover using this thing? We look forward to some great contribution to humanity, Sean.
  34. Thank you for the compliments.
  35. Thanks, bratjdd. This one is a gem. I let go of my other Sicard vases because they didn't rock like this one.
  36. Thanks for the answer, art.pottery. Please tell me what gives it away as recent Asian.
  37. I don't believe Amphora manufactured this. Cogito is likely referring to the object (an amphora vessel) that Dressler used as their logo.
  38. Lovely face.
  39. This is one of those objects I come across now and then that will consume me with envy of the owner so I have to try to forget about it.
  40. Happy New Year, Sean!
  41. Phat, So glad you acquired this vase. I love the colors on this one.
  42. Thank you for the comments Elisabethan, Moonhill, and antiquerose.
  43. Vetraio50 has it right. Your vase is by Riessner, Stellmacher, and Kessel (AKA Amphora), which was one of the finest Art Nouveau pottery manufactories. Your piece is early Amphora circa 1895. I hav...
  44. Suffice to say it is wondrous what they packed into 2.5 inches.
  45. I enjoy your writing style, VioletOrange.
  46. Phatbuddha, Looking forward to seeing your dragon vase on CW. Glad you were able to get it.
  47. The bat vase is cool. It was made by a contemporary pottery called Freiwald that clearly gets inspiration from Amphora.
  48. Another example of this is on ebay right now. I don't know the seller.
  49. For the record, I have to say that the deal fell through on buying this so I don't own it. I paid and then they told me it had been sold to someone else and refunded my money. Life goes on.
  50. Thank you, miKKo. All the best in 2014 for you.
