Description

Jason Jacques writes the following about a similar vase: "The decor that adorns this ivory porcelain vase depicts an elegant formal garden with carefully pruned topiaries and delicate garlands of roses. A distant forest is suggested by faint grey-green images in the middle ground. The symmetrical arrangements of the floral elements (as in Michael Powolny's work) and the wavy designs on the gilded flower pot (as in Gustav Klimt's paintings) are evidence of Vienna Secession influence. The deployment of background colors on the gently undulating body is typical of the Reissner, Stellmacher, & Kessel "Amphora" at the turn of the 20th century. "
