This is a Czech Bohemian ewer porcelain vase, Austria, Turn-Teplitz, Bohemia, Czechia, and the maker is Alfred Stellmacher. The ewer has Stellmacher's amphora mark on the bottom. The age is 19th century, circa 1859 to 1894.
The amphora ewer is 5 7/8" high and 4 ¾" wide at the belly.
The form of the ewer is one of a round lower belly, a long slender neck, one handle, and a tip at the mouth for the spout. The glaze is green with mottled flecks of white.
The front of the ewer has long stems of porcelain holly leaves and red porcelain holly berries, applied to the ewer. I give three close-up photos. The applied porcelain gets damaged over time. Where parts of the leaves broke off, someone at some point in time applied a green color to match the leaves, so essentially it appears like there is no damage at all. Or else this is how the leaves were produced, but since I've sold quite a few pieces over the years with applied porcelain foliage, I know that damage happens, so my bet is that the leaves were professionally touched up.
The ewer has no chips, cracks or crazing.
The underside well is glazed a light green. The foot rest is bisque, or unglazed.
The red mark is an amphora with Stellmacher above and Teplitz below. There is another mark that is too smudged and faded to read. There is an impressed number 1078 with an impressed 7 below.
