This is a Bohemian pottery vase. The maker is Carl Knoll, or the Karlsbad Porcelain Factory Carl Knoll. The date is circa 1916 – 1918.
The vase is 8 5/8" high and 3 ¾" wide at the bottom.
The shape is cylindrical with four splayed feet and a branch over each foot, gilded in gold. The mouth is indented at spaced intervals.
The design on the vase is one of flowers, colored in glazes and touched with lines and beads of gold. The bottom is a cobalt glaze. On the body of the base the glaze turns to other colors so as to show the leaves and flower petals and different background colors. The other colors are green, yellow, peach, cream and white. The inside of the vase is glazed an off-white.
The bottom of the vase has the green underglaze mark of Carl Knoll, with the monogram of CK with a crown above, a wreath to the sides and the words Karlsbad, Austria. In black enamel is the number 3239 followed by II. There is also more numbering and lettering that is too faded to read.
There are no chips, nicks, cracks or crazing. There is a slight wear of gold gilding on the points of the rim.
