There are a lot of light glares in the photos, due to the brilliant glazing of the pottery.
This is a cylindrical German pottery vase, entirely hand painted. The vase has maker marks on the underside that I cannot decipher. The date is circa 1900.
The vase is 10” high, 2 ½” wide at the mouth and 4 ¾” wide at the base.
The mouth is flat and glazed.
The vase is entirely hand painted in a rural scene showing a country lane, a farm house, mountains and many trees. The trees are painted in dark colors of black and brown.
The inside and outside of the vase has crazing, which is normal for glazing on pottery.
There are no chips, nicks or cracks. There are a few flecks of missing color. There are lines in the glaze of the underside; these lines are not cracks. The bottom footrest shows dirt and age. The inside of the vase shows age wear.
The underside has a mark that appears to be a coat of arms containing letters, perhaps SM. Underneath is a printed word that starts with the letters “Sch” and ends with “berg.” The number 14 is hand enameled. There is an impressed number of 2149.
