Geranium Vase by Zsolnay
Hungary, circa 1900
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.
