Vase with Pheasant
Ceramic vase from Amphora aptly named “Vase with Pheasant”, designed by Eduard Stellmacher circa 1905.
The stem is decorated with trees while the pheasant is standing on the bulbous part of the body, with its tail sweeping around. The whole is beautifully coloured and glazed with gilded highlights.
Impressed with the Amphora and crown mark for Riessner Stellmacher & Kessel. There is a very slight hairline to the back of the pheasant but this is not noticeable on display.
