Click on each photo to see it supersize! Description: This stunning vase is a gorgeous example of the work of Julius Strnact in Turn-Teplitz, Austria sometime between the years 1882 and 1914. Narrowing down the time frame a little more, I would date this between 1890 and 1910, given that it is not at all Victorian, but rather is decidedly Art Nouveau with its flowing lines and floral motif. It measures 9 ¼" tall and approximately 5 ½" in diameter at its widest point, not including the handles. The body of the vase is glazed in deep green with yellow, pale green, and white flowers in high relief, accented with pale green flowing leaves. It is lined in a gorgeous pale pink glaze. This is unmarked but I have no doubt that it is the product of Strnact, as I have had identical pieces in the past that were marked and this vase shape and the glaze colors were ones he routinely used. This does bear the model number is 4048 which is another indication of its Strnact heritage, as the Strnact number 4049 is exactly the same shape with an iris motif. This vase is in excellent condition with its only issues being a small tight hairline at the rim with a few fleabites, and a small chip at the base. See the photos below for details. Shipping weight: 3 lb. 3 oz.
