    The vase dates from 1899-1918 if its a genuine one, from the photos it looks genuine. The vase is from the Ernst Wahliss - Alfred Stellmacher
    Alexandra Porcelain Works, but in 1905 it was renamed Alexandra Porcelain Works Ernst Wahliss by his sons Hans and Erich. The name signed on the vase is the artist who painted it i should imagine.

    Ernst Wahliss - Alfred Stellmacher
    Alexandra Porcelain Works Ernst Wahliss Marks

    Ernst Wahliss Trnovany, Czech Republic (Turn-Teplitz, Bohemia, Austria)

    1863 The Ernst Wahliss business was founded in Trnovany, Czech Republic (Turn-Teplitz, Bohemia, Austria). The business had retail stores in London, England and Vienna, Austria where it sold Bohemian porcelain.

    1894 Wahliss bought the Alfred Stellmacher Imperial and Royal Porcelain Factory (founded in 1859). Ernst died in 1900. In 1902, his sons, Hans and Erich, bought 600 original molds from the former Imperial and Royal Porcelain Manufactory in Vienna and made reproductions of the Vienna porcelain. In 1905, his sons Hans and Erich named the company Alexandra Porcelain Works Ernst Wahliss. Manufacturing turned to mostly faïence after 1910. This factory was known for its unique designs. Paul Dachsel designed some pieces before starting his own factory in 1905.

    1921 the factory was merged into Porcelain Union, United Porcelain Factory AG. One of the Marks used by this factories was a wreath with the word Union and the alpha character "T," for Turn-Teplitz or Trnovany.

    1927 Porcelain Union, United Porcelain Factory AG joined the EPIAG association.

    1934 all of the Porcelain Union, United Porcelain Factory AG factories were closed.

    This factory sometimes used a bidenschield (beehive) Mark on pieces. The factory also used Angelica Kauffmann painting reproductions on its pieces. Some of these pieces are not properly marked for the factory and some pieces have the Kauffmann signature in the motif; these pieces are considered "fakes." Pieces must be properly disclosed as to factory and not everyone knows that Kauffmann died a long time before the factory was founded. The true Imperial and Royal Porcelain Manufactory bidenschield Mark is hard to distinguish. Nonetheless, this factory produced high quality beautiful pieces.
