Rare Large Amphora Fates Ceramic Vase / E. Stellmacher Signed ~~ Circa 1900 ~~

Presented for your collection, a nice tall RSt&K Amphora "fates" series vase with uncommon "Ed. Stellmacher" signature on the form side (see pictures). This "fates" variant differs from the majority of this sort of production in that the maidens do not appear to be in peril and it has butterflies around the top.  The addition of the signature of "Eduard Stellmacher" to the form side indicates that the artist so important to the success of Amphora had a direct hand in the vase form design and execution.  The form number and desirable Amphora maiden raised label on the underside puts this vase production squarely at 1899.

This Amphora vase form, #3746, is illustrated in Byron Vreeland’s (2011) “Monsters & Maidens: Collector’s Edition” on pg. 188 under the “Women in the Storm” section with a variant glaze application.


Riessner, Stellmacher & Kessel (RSt&K) "Amphora" operated in Turn-Teplitz (Trnovany) Bohemia, now the Czech Republic.  They  all executed works of the highest quality standards and received special recognition at World Fairs and Expositions during their years of production.  Riessner, Stellmacher and Kessel (RSt&K) took the Grand Prize at the 1904 St. Louis Worlds Fair.  


Dimensions: 11”(27.94 cm; Height) x 5”(12.70 cm; Width, base) x 3”(7.62 cm; Width, top).  Good centerpiece type vase.


Condition: No damage, repair, or restoration.  The glaze surfaces are uniformly excellent.  No notable surface scratches or damage.  Fully marked RSt&K Amphora.  Guaranteed antique Amphora.
