Heubach Brothers, a German company, was founded by Georg Christoph and Philip Jakob Heubach in Lichte, Thuringia, in 1843. In 1938 the company was forced to close and file bankruptcy. During the late 1800's Gebruder Heubach made figurines and decorative objects from bisque porcelain.
Tapestry porcelain was a process made famous by the Royal Bayreuth Company and was achieved by pressing fabric against the damp surface of the porcelain giving the textured look and feel of fabric. This lovely tapestry porcelain vase is decorated with a transfer motif of three stylish ladies enjoying their time in a park-like setting, surrounded by trees, shrubbery and statuary. They are making a floral swag from live flowers they have brought along. The vase measures 10 1/4" in height, 1 3/4" across the top and 3 1/4" across the base. There are no cracks, chips or repairs; unfortunately someone decided to make it into a lamp at some point and drilled a hole on the back-side near the base. This could be restored, but the location does not impact the presentation of the piece. Priced accordingly.
