Recently uncovered in a Philadelphia area estate.this is a large antique art pottery planter or jardiniere by Imperial Amphora, circa 1900. The price has been lowered substantially, as the consignor is anxious to sell.
The planter is 12 1/4" x 12" high and approximately 6" across. It is realistic, yet sentimental in design, and depicts an old woman with a bundle of hay, followed by two goats. It is semi-porcelain, glazed in pastel taupe, blue and gray. Amphora made several planters with bucolic scenes, but I have not been able to find another like this.
The planter has been in storage for many years. The only damage I find is a broken horn on one goat (please see close-up photo). There is lime scale on the interior of the planting well. This can usually be removed with white vinegar or a commercial preparation, but I am hesitant to do this myself - better left to a more experienced person.
Marked Amphora, Austria, 5054 with a crown mark.
This is a heavy item - nearly 7 pounds when packed.
