A beautiful Austrian Amphora Arts & Crafts enamelled gull motif hand painted vase.


Fantastic shape with four handles and reticulated rim along with a a highly textured surface decorated with thickly outlined enamelled seagulls. Fantastic colourway of white and pinks/purples complete with gold trimming. A great example of Art Nouveau pottery dating from the Vienna Secession art movement.

Amphora refers to art pottery produced by a particular company in Teplitz during the Art Nouveau period. There were up to 30 ceramics manufacturers in the kaolin-rich Turn-Teplitz region of Bohemia at the time. They opened factories, closed again, changed owners, merged or shared common designers. Antique dealers and collectors often refer to Art Nouveau pottery produced in the Turn-Teplitz region collectively as Teplitz. But the name Amphora is used exclusively by one particular company.

Has impressed marks "AUSTRIA" in an oval; "AMPHORA" in an oval; numbers "3886" & "44"; and a crown mark.

In fantastic condition with no chips, cracks, or restoration, but the gold gilding has slightly faded in part on the handles and rim.

Stands 7"/18 cm in height - 7"/18 cm across the top - 5.25"/13.5 cm across the base.
