This is a very fine example of Amphora. It is Circa 1900 and is a beautiful bowl with a young boy and girl on each side reaching down. The bowl is hand painted with garlands of roses in a gloss finish. The children are done in subtle muted colors in a matte finish which creates a beautiful contrast within the piece. It is fully signed on the base, Turn Teplitz Bohemia with RS&K in red, also Amphora incised with a crown and numbered, please refer to photos. There are a few minor issues. The tip of one finger on the girl is missing and also on each hand of the boy there is one tip missing. One on his hand inside the bowl and also one on the outside of the bowl. These are minor defects considering the age of this piece and can easily be resolved by a porcelain restorer. This exceptional piece measures 7 1/2" to the top of the girl's bonnet and 6 1/2" across the widest part of the bowl. It weighs 2 1/2 lbs. This is a very whimsical and charming example of Amphora.
