This is a dramatic and beautiful vase that is signed by the artist on the bottom and numbered. It is completely hand painted with very colorful and vivid Mums in shades of white, yellow and red. The flower literally leap off the surface with their vibrancy. They are very well painted. The glory of the Chrysanthemums is accented by a gorgeous green background. The upper brim is painted in gold; it looks luscious and thick, but it may have been applied later. It certainly does not detract in the least from this beauty and adds a rich touch.
The vase stands 15 1/4" tall.
It is in excellent condition with no chips, cracks or hairlines. It is a gorgeous vase; the colors are wonderful.
It is marked with a crown, hand painted and numbered - most likely German or Czechoslovakian. Early 1900's.
