    Here's today's offering from Salvation fresh off the production cart this morning and into my hands. Two very nice vases from very different makers. One German the other American. The elegant slender 16" ES Royal Saxe vase from Germany has gilded handles and hand painted flowers on both sides. The green crown stamp on the bottom was used from 1861 onward. It's not perfect though. I noticed the small chip to the foot on the bottom but not the 4" hairline crack in the neck until I got home. Oh well, I have very few perfect pieces and it doesn't detract from it's beauty at all. The 10" Warwick China vase is an American piece from West Virginia. The lovely portrait is transfer decoration on their popular brown red body. The bottom carries their mark and the cryptic word "IOGA" which has no known meaning according to Kovels. Warwick made these to mimic Rookwood's native American portrait vases which bring huge money at auction in today's market. My lady Warwick here is not one of their more desirable pieces however compared to the monk and Indian decors but the color and shape is what caught my eye. No damage either ! -Mike-

    ES Royal Saxe German Porcelain
    Courtesy of

    ES Germany porcelain was made at the factory of Erdmann Schlegelmilch from 1861 to 1937 in Suhl, Germany. The porcelain, marked ES Germany or ES Suhl, was sold decorated or undecorated. Most of the porcelain with the ES Germany mark is from the late 1890s or from about 1902 to 1938. Other pieces were made at a factory in Saxony, Prussia, and are marked ES Prussia. Reinhold Schlegelmilch made the famous wares marked RS Germany.

    Warwick China
    Courtesy of

    Warwick china was made in Wheeling, West Virginia, in a pottery working from 1887 to 1951. Many pieces were made with hand painted or decal decorations. The most familiar Warwick has a shaded brown background. Warwick's most desirable pieces are those decorated with portraits of monks or American Indians and its vitrified chinaware, an unusual product for a nineteenth-century American company. The name Warwick is part of the mark and sometimes the mysterious word IOGA is also included.

      Oh mike, I love them both, I agree the very delicate pottery from Germany are rarely perfect, specially those with little handle.
      Beautiful find.

      Hi Alan..thanks for the "love" and comment. Yes I was a bit upset with myself for not noticing the hairline in the store but it wasn't very expensive and so elegant. All the things that usually get damaged like handles are perfect. I did find this exact shape vase in a Tennessee auction house. They had it priced at $1035.00 !! It had a portrait of a young lady and done in red with gilding. Problem with that is the value depends on the decor and the portrait, animal and scenic ones are more valuable than the florals which are quite common. They didn't have a picture of the bottom or mark but I bet the expensive one was RS Prussia, so earlier than mine even though it's the same shape. The same blanks were used by different German factories over a period of years . I would have felt worse about the damage had it been the expensive :)

      They are both so elegant Mike. I can appreciate the Royal Saxe but it is the Warwick that really appeals to me. Well found!

      Thanks Karen...I was really pleased to find these after coming home empty handed the day before. We're in that odd time of year where the stores can get pretty empty until folks start their Spring cleaning. :)
