The Amphora Porcelain Factory of Turn-Teplitz, Austria produced this figurine between 1892-1905. This graceful figurine is an excellent example of the Art Nouveau pieces that Amphora was producing at the turn of the 20th century. Featuring a female figure wearing a flowing swirling gown and is holding garland of exotic lavender flowers. She is standing on a base of ruffled stylized petals . She is posed with her head tilted to the left with her long waving hair hanging down in tendrils over her right arm. The porcelain has a smooth satin finish all over except the figure's legs are finished in high gloss glaze. The predominate color is a muted gold tone of the gown and the petal base. The hair ornament is lavender with a muted gold wash. There is a small amount of damage with one of the points of the ornament missing. The figure's face is beautifully hand painted with a lovely realistic blush to the cheek. The sculptural quality of this piece is remarkable, from the modeling of the facial features and hands to the flowing drape of the figure's gown. This porcelain figure is of highest quality with some very minute chips to the ruffled edge of the gown, given the figurine's age and fragility that is truly remarkable. These are more felt than seen as the contour of the gown is very ruffled and undulating. The height is approximately 17 inches tall with a width of 6 inches across the arms. A treasure for any collection.
