Offered for sale is a 19th century nautilus themed Teplitz ewer with a full figured dragon handle. It is embellished with hand painted floral sprays highlighted in raised gilt enamel. The base is decorated with coral formations, and the ewer is finished in an iridescent glaze. Teplitz was known for their fantastical sculptures, this ewer is a prime example of their unparalleled artistry.
The jug is in excellent condition, no chips, repairs, or breaks, the only discrepancy is that there was a small hole in the base that was professionally plugged at some time before our possession. The mark was covered up but reads Teplitz porcelain.
Size 14 1/2" height by 9 1/2" length
