RSTK Amphora Templitz Art Nouveau Flower-Form Bud Vase - image 1 of 10

Generally recognized as the first and perhaps the best of the Amphora manufacturers, Reissner, Stellmacher & Kessel was established in the Turn-Teplitz region of Bohemia in 1892. The ceramics Reissner and his 2 partners produced was known for its unique styles and the interesting glazes they used to create what became known as "Amphora" pottery or simply "Teplitz." Reissner, Stellmacher & Kessel (R. St. K.) displayed their work in America for the first time at the 1893 Chicago World's Fair. The partners enjoyed business and artistic success but in 1905 Stellmacher left the firm to establish his own company under his own name. The original firm continued to operate as the Reissner & Kessel Amphora Works and operated as such until Kessel also left in 1910. Subsequently, the original firm operated under the business name Amphora Werke Reissner continuing to produce fine Amphora art pottery through the Art Deco period and the years of World War II, at which time it was nationalized by the Czechoslovakian government in 1945.

This gorgeous Art Nouveau Templitz bud vase, circa 1892-1905, has a bulbous base, reticulated leaf-formed neck with twig handles. The sculptured organic form displays gentle ribbing, embossed floral and leaf formations. The soft beige bisque finish is decorated with shaded purple to light blue pansy flowers and buds nestled among encrusted antique gold foliage and detailing. The vase is further enhanced with brushed antique gold highlights. The vase measures 6 3/8" in height, 4 1/2" across the widest portion of the body and 2 1/2" across the base. It is stamped in brown "Turn-Templitz-Bohemia; RSTK; Made in Austria". There are no cracks, chips or repairs; near mint.
