My wife and I love the Arts & Crafts movement. We normally collect furniture, hand painted plates, hand tooled leather purses and just about anything that catches our eye that fits the bill. We also love Art Nouveau though finding information on all the European makers can be a test.
We popped on these as they were coming in the door in a grocery cart at an antique store we used to haunt in Memphis, TN. Gotta love the South. So many great finds down here.
They have the following marking: 223 Made in Austria Reproduction Reserve. We have since learned that they are not in fact Reproductions as we though with that type of marking. The downside is we have no clue about anything else. What kind of wood? The artist? They are ceramic reliefs that appear to be hand painted Terra Cotta.
Got an ideas?
Thanks so much.
