Geranium Vase by Zsolnay
Hungary, circa 1900
9" high

Zsolnay was one of the widely acclaimed Art Nouveau ceramics manufactories, winning awards at the world expositions of their day. They are still in business, but like some other potteries, their best work ended with the Art Nouveau era. This vase has the renowned Zsolnay eosin glaze which is iridescent and changes as the day's light ebbs and flows.

It has the raised, round five steeples mark.

    "I suppose all these people know better than I.
    It was silly, perhaps, but I did like the view
    Of geraniums (red) and delphiniums (blue)."

    i love the way those complex and unusual colors of the pelargonium leaves were captured - even the texture sort of...

    i can't believe how beautiful this is!! wasn't there a very big 'red geranium' craze in Germany around 1930?
  17. AmphoraPottery AmphoraPottery, 3 years ago
    Thanks for the compliment, ho2cultcha. I don't know much about Germany so I can't answer your question about a geranium craze around 1930. Apparently, Zsolnay of Hungary thought the geranium was worthy of a vase around 1900.

    Beautiful...Geranium's at their best.
