Named for the ancient Greek two-handled storage vases, Amphora pottery was produced in the Turn-Teplitz region of Bohemia during the Art Nouveau era, and are often referred to by dealers and collectors as “Teplitz.” The art pottery vases crafted by R. St. K. (the first prominent creators of amphora vases) are known for combining unusual shapes with striking glazes and are generally noted for more elaborate and flowing Art Nouveau influences in comparison to their contemporaries. Many Amphora pieces included snakes, brightly plumed birds, bats, and even mythical dragons woven cleverly into their designs.
