    The Renaissance Princess by Amphora
    Bohemia, circa 1897
    11" high

    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. The Amphora scholar Dr. Byron Vreeland believes that she is a Renaissance Princess and therefore that is what he calls her in his Amphora book Monsters & Maidens: The Collector's Edition.

    Amphora placed each of the portrait ladies on a variety of forms. This is one of my favorites for the Princess.

    You can watch a dramatic video of Amphora Art Nouveau pottery on YouTube by searching for “Amphora Pottery.” Also, see more Amphora at

      Definitely a homage to Pre-Rapaelite thematic motifs. Beautiful symmetry.

      I remember when I fell in love with them, Budek. It was a fine feeling.
