The Eastern Warrior by Amphora
Bohemia, circa 1897
For the most part, Amphora portrait vases are an enigma. No company records have surfaced to tell us what the names of the vases are and who, if anybody in particular, is being depicted. Many collectors believe this lady is a female Samurai. Thus, she is called the Eastern Warrior in Monsters & Maidens: The Collector's Edition by Dr. Byron Vreeland.
