    Found this Amphora portrait vase. Unfortunately there is a hairline in it but I like it so much I was thinking on getting a restoration. Any thoughts? Did some research and I came across an artist name. Not sure if this is one of his. Any info. would be greatly appreciated. THANKS

      She is so beautiful.
      I found this:
      An Amphora glazed porcelain Portrait vase, decorated by Nicholaus Kannhaüser produced by Reissner Stellmacher & Kessel, 1892-1905

      Slightly different but I believe by the same hand. If your vase is as good she would be valuable undamaged.
      Me? I would restore her just to keep in the hope that restoration will keep her together.

      (Richard L. Scott et al., Ceramics from the House of Amphora, Sidney, Ohio, Richard L. Scott, 2004).
      Leave it like this; hairline crack cannot be repaired unless overpainted, which would make it even worse. Enjoy your beautiful vase.
