Majolica Jardinière "Seahorses" by Amphora, CZ, circa 1910

About

Unusual rare Majolica Jardinière by Amphora Czechoslovakia made around 1910, the famous Art Nouveau period. This masterpiece shows an outstanding design with two seahorses building this fantastic shaped jardinière. The seahorses comes with a nice matt coloration in yellow and red. The yellow body is adorned by green and blue tone colored block elements. This uncommon Majolica jardinière is in very good, absolute untouched original condition and shows the typical so-called "craquele", very fine hair cracks in the glaze - especially on the inside. Hallmarked on the bottom with the well known Amphora stamp and Mod. No. 51047, this jardinière will please every Majolica collector´s heart.

About Amphora (Manufacturer)

Jugendstil—the Germanic name for the sinuous, ethereal design style best known as Art Nouveau—rarely found better expression in ceramics that at the kilns of Amphora. In 1892, Austrian potter Alfred Stellmacher and four relatives opened a workshop that produced earthenware featuring plants, animals, mythical creatures, simulated jewels and even portraits in the style of Gustav Klimt and other fashionable painters of the era. Each piece was signed Amphora. The factory also produced ewers, bowls, tureens, and other diverse shapes. Located in the former spa resort town of Turn-Teplitz (now part of the Czech Republic), the Amphora factory took advantage of the abundant kaolin in the local riverbeds—as well as the energy produced by the rivers themselves—in manufacturing their arresting wares.


     Amphora pieces were painstakingly produced via a method that included detailed sketches, intricate carving and molding and luminous iridescent glazing. All culminated with repeated firings of the clay—sometimes as many as ten times. As a result, the firm won worldwide acclaim, taking gold medals at the Chicago and St. Louis World’s Fairs. Its wares were sold by luxury emporiums like Tiffany & Co.


     Collectors prize Amphora vases for their delicate, naturalistic designs, and larger pieces often command prices in the tens of thousands. Equally sought after are portrait busts featuring religious, literary and allegorical themes. If you’re mourning the end of Downton Abbey and you’d like to add a dash of Lady Edith’s bohemian flair to your home, an Amphora vase or bowl will serve as a unique conversation piece.
