Here are four versions of a Vintage Art Nouveau style pottery tankard. Titled “Paradise” it shows a Biblical scene of Adam cradling Eve while the serpent is above encircling the handle. 7 7/8" Tall x 6 1/2" x 5" diameter. I have found a total of six of these so far.
(It looks like they originally had lids.) They have all been apparently hand glazed/decorated by different artists. Two are signed by different people. One is dated 1962. I own the solid green one but eventually found the others by searching the internet. So far I have no information about who made the vases, who decorated them, or under what circumstances were they decorated. I am an educator and my guess is that these were part of an art activity conducted by a Christian religious organization and the participants were adults or young adults. If you know anything about these, please let me know.
