Decorative Ceramic Coffee Table by Amphora St-Andries, 1960s Belgium

$3,943.17

About

In 1957 Rogier Vandeweghe left Perignem, a ceramics workshop he had founded together with his brother Laurent. He relocated to Sint-Andries, a suburb of Bruges, where he founded his new company Amphora. Together with his wife and ceramic painter Myranna Pyck he produced ceramic vases, tiles and tables with strong colors and different types of glazing. This table dates from the mid sixties and is a perfect example of the craftsmanship Vandeweghe was known for. The table is signed Amphora Sint-Andries and stands in a very good condition. It comes from the first owner who bought it in 1968.

About the Maker

Amphora

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.
