Zsolnay Cabinet Vase
Beautiful and rare little Art Nouveau decorative vase from Zsolnay Pecs. Just 14 cm high, the porcelain-faience body is covered with a polychrome glaze and sits in a gilded pewter mount that has a design of leaves and sinuous stems, which was probably made by the metalwork company Orivit.
There is a large Zsolnay Pecs stamp on the underside with the metal mount impressed with the number 630.
Some of the gilding is worn but, bearing in mind it dates from c. 1900, this is hardly surprising and it could easily be reapplied if thought necessary.
A real little gem.
