Found this the other day and brought it home: I could not resist the blue! A magpie am I !! I have long admired the Amphora Pottery of Turn-Teplitz, Austria. Over the years a few of their pieces have come into my possession and only one remained until the other day.
It is a later piece as can be seen with the stamped mark of "Made in Czecho-Slovakia" - which places it after WWI.
But it was the decoration that caught my eye.
The four handled lustre vase has been overpainted in blue and decorated with the Glasgow Rose and a red heart. Daisies abound!
I've found others on the net that bear the earlier mark of Paul Dachsel when he went out on his own from 1906 until 1911 to form Kunstkeramik Paul Dachsel. Paul Dachsel was the son-in-law of Alfred Stellmacher, the founder of Amphora Pottery.
I'm hoping that someone else can provide me with some information about these pieces.
