Up for your consideration is a very rare and early vase by Alfred Stellmacher, made a few years before founding “Amphora”. It is in the Jugendstil style, made in Turn-Teplitz, and features a raised decoration with colorful enamel filled sections is reminiscent of the cloisonne technique. Imagery depicts two seated figures smoking a pipe on either side of the vase. An abstract face is depicted just beneath the round opening on either side, between the two handles. Underside is stamped “Stellmacher Teplitz” in red. Height: 8″ x Width: 6″. This piece was likely crafted between 1890 – 1895, and is in the Jugendstil (German/Austrian Art Nouveau) style. Stellmacher (with others) founded Riessner, Stellmacher and Kessel Amphora Porcelain Works (RStK), better known as Amphora, in 1892. Logically, the mark on this piece should predate the formation of this company by a few years, although precise use of the years associated with this mark are unknown. The vase is in excellent condition, free of chips, cracks, damage, or loss. There are some areas of imperfection in the glazes and designs i. Enamels dripping below their associated area, etc. , but nothing distracting or significant. There are few “light” spots on the brown glaze (from manufacture), and a small area of minor roughness on the underside. All of these minor factory issues are clearly shown in the last few photos, and are minor. The vase is free of chips, cracks, damage, or loss. This quote is for the Continental U.
