    Another treasure from my estate-sale outing this past Sunday! I find this vase fascinating and oddly beautiful! I am not sure what the teal blue objects are that are reaching from the vase and over the top. They are probably part of the plant life imagined on the vase. Or, maybe they are snakes!

    Anyway, I'm still doing research on this beauty. It is well-marked, but, the Google research has not yet given a 100% answer. Was this vase done by the premier Austrian Turn/Teplitz company, Reissner, Stellmacher, & Kessel? I don't know. When googled, the available information, "crown, amphora, Turn, Imperial" comes up with R,S, & K. It is possible to make out "Turn Imperial Amphora" in the very faded circular mark in the middle of the bottom of the vase when compared to clearer marks on the internet. I also have to wonder what the 2 very separate capital "G"s mean.

    The vase is almost 10 inches tall and at its widest 3 inches.

    I am not going to mark this as an unsolved mystery as I believe I know that it is an Art Nouveau, Turn Austria Imperial Amphora, pottery vase. I would like to know the exact maker, age, and what the "G"s mean, as well as the numbers. That would be nice. But, as I said, I'm continuing my research.

    And, I love my vase. I hope you do too. Thanks for looking and for whatever information you can give me. :)

      “The marks belong to the Amphora factory, but the central mark comes after Alfred Stellmacher left his partnership with Riessner and Kessel in 1905; the firm name then became 'Riessner & Kessel "Amphora".' I think the piece dates probably to c. 1906-10, but maybe a little later. “

      This is information provided to me for one of my own pieces by a knowledgeable gentlemen on a Facebook group called Art Nouveau Ceramiques. Yours is of the same period as my own.
