    The works of Hungarian manufactory Zsolnay, along with those of Amphora and Clement Massier, are in the pantheon of Art Nouveau ceramics. As with most of Zsolnay's Art Nouveau pieces, this vase has the renowned iridescent glaze that they called eosin. As you move around the vase different sections appear electrified. It mesmerizes me to no end.

    The second, third, and fourth photos were taken without use of flash or any other artificial lighting

    Circa 1900
    5" high

      Very nice of you AmberRose. I wish I could take credit for the vase. I'm just a lucky caretaker.

      Superb, I'm not sure flowers could hold up to the beauty of the vase
    11. AmphoraPottery AmphoraPottery, 12 years ago
      I added some close ups. However, I don't have a camera that can do them particularly well. At least you can see the detail in the glaze and get an added sense of the iridescence. I didn't use flash or artificial light. I had the front door open this afternoon and the sunlight found its way to the vase with this effect.

      i did a little research on the use of the flanders poppy in ceramics and discovered that it became an extremely popular subject in 1915 - due to WWI. do you think this might be from 1915?
    23. AmphoraPottery AmphoraPottery, 8 years ago
      That is an interesting discovery, ho2cultcha. Zsolnay numbered their pieces in a chronological fashion, allowing one to know the date within a 1-2 year range. My poppy vase was made right around 1900.
    24. AmphoraPottery AmphoraPottery, 6 years ago
      Just posted three new photos, all taken in natural light, to complement the one in the mix that was professionally done.
