This Amphora Turn-Teplitz Bohemian pottery candlestick stem stands 8.25" high by 5" in diameter. This candlestick dates to the early part of the 20th century, specifically, circa 1900-1904. It was made by Riessner, Stellmacher & Kessel, made in Austria, and it is marked as such. This candlestick, from the 'Organic Form' line, is a Paul Daschel design, and depicts stylized large berries, in relief cloaking the candle cup, with fine branching twisting and turning as it rises from the splayed base, in true Art Nouveau style. This vessel is organically glazed in a combination of blue and green, with pale berry accents, finished in a satin matte. This candlestick was designed by Paul Daschel, who was one of R,S&K's finest designer/artists. It is well marked Amphora, shape #3538, with the added R,S&K scroll cipher on the base, which has striated lines, indicating that this candlestick was hand finished on the potter's wheel. It is in mint condition, no apologies. If you collect Bohemian art pottery, or simply great Art Nouveau objects, here's your chance to add a beautifully stated organic Amphora vessel to your collection, it's stunning!
