Very Large Vontury Water Lily Vase

Vontury, Inc. was founded by Francis J. von Tury in 1939. He was a leading ceramics engineer, who worked as an advisor for ceramics companies throughout North America and Europe. Some of his developments for these companies (I suspect) filtered back to his own enterprise, as his advances included glaze for porcelain and a one-fire process for vitreous china.

This vase are in white vitreous china, with underglaze decoration of a single large, well-rendered water lily flower, with a second, unopened bud. The colors of this decoration have been allowed to run slightly in the firing.

Size: 15.75" tall, 6.5" in diameter at its widest.

Condition: dry (unglazed) bottom slightly soiled, otherwise fine and as new.

Mark: hand-inscribed "Vontury" on bottom.
