This is a lovely Austrian Amphora pitcher with a dark blue lizard handle and applied gold flowers on the front. It stands 14" tall and 6" wide. The applied flowers are in a dusty gold color and the back is not decorated. The base of the pitcher is gold in color. The piece is signed with a crown, amphora in oval and mold numbers. It was made between 1898 and 1910 and is considered to be made by RSTK. Reissner, Kessel and Stellmacher. This vase was shown in the 1893 Worlds Fair in Chicago where it won 1st place in ceramics and Best in Show. The condition is excellent..
