This marvelous vase has been deliberately sculpted and glazed to simulate elephant ivory. It does a great job of it without harming any critters along the way!
This line, 'Oriental' that Rudolstadt produced is really remarkable (see the fabulous inkwell separately listed).
This vase measures 8" high and is quite hefty. It is in very good displayable and usable condition, however, there is a chip at the edge of the foot (see photos and closeups). No other chips, cracks, repairs, etc. Priced accordingly.
Due to the deep bas relief work, this is probably from an early pull from the mold because as the mold was used the relief was not as distinct compared to the other one listed.
To further provide testimony to that, please see the exact same vase listed separately. The last photo shows them together. The other vase is more expensive because it does not have the chip.
