Wonderfully large and strikingly designed double maiden form Art Nouveau ceramic vase (circa 1900). Stamped on the bottom "1523", "HB", and what appears to be hand painted "vv". Dimensions: 14.5"(H) x 13.5"(W).

This one is a bit of a mystery. It was purchased from a seller in Belgium, but attributed (by the seller) as Austrian/Bohemian. The markings do not provide much in the way of clues, but the same piece is pictured in Judith Miller's (2004) "Art Nouveau" DK Collectors Guide (pg. 108) and also attributed as Bohemian by her. This added bit of information mildly swayed me, but recently I found the same vase, but with a very different glaze application, attributed as Rambervillers (French). So, I'm back to square one.

    Exquisite! Looks like there may be another mark under the "BH" that look like it starts with a "Z"? I would say that it is more Austrian/German, but I'm no expert. I'll see what i can find on the marks

    I found this on the search for Rambervillers, but your piece is much more refined that this artist's piece, but perhaps further research into the other artist's names would be fruitful. I will continue my search on the German route!

    Early Zsolnay? Pre 1885? The number is a similar format.

    Also, the brown silver glaze looks the same as well as the quality of the modeling of form.

    Gorgeous cogito. Did you find out if it was by zsolnay?
  16. cogito cogito, 4 years ago
    Hi, Vintagefran. No, I never did. I suspect it may still be German or Belgian, though I'm not completely discounting the Zsolnay hypothesis. One of my hopes is that posting it here someone with more knowledge about the piece will be able to provide an answer.

    Hi Cogito.
    Happy New Year 2ü

    I hope you find out more about it.
