This lovely porcelain vase has Art Nouveau flowing lines and two curvy handles. The amphora shaped body was given a soft velvety matte white glaze. The branches, vines and leaves that decorate both the front and the back have raised gilding and beautiful blue green enamel, along with touches of mauve. A matte peach glaze colors the reticulated, scalloped upper rim and the scalloped base. They are accented with gilt, as are the matte peach handles. The interior is unglazed bisque and not meant to hold water. There are no maker or country of origin marks, just a printed G 738 on the bottom. The vase is possibly from Bohemia or Austria but without a mark...
This is a dainty vase, standing 8 inches tall, with a 4 inch wide belly and measuring 3 inches in diameter at the base and across the mouth. It's in top condition and obviously spent its life in a cabinet.
