Nymph on a Gourd by Ernst Wahliss
Bohemia, circa 1900
8" high

Wahliss was both a seller and producer of fine ceramics. His Vienna store purportedly had the largest porcelain offering in Europe at one time. He also had stores in Paris and London. He had a long intertwined history with Amphora, which is why you will find his ceramics in the books on Amphora. You can read about this history in Monsters & Maidens: Collector's Edition by Dr. Byron Vreeland, the exceptional Amphora collector and scholar.

This form with a different glaze is featured in Monsters & Maidens.
