Ernst Wahliss was an Austrian ceramicist who created ornate porcelain and earthenware vessels for European elites.He was also known for small-scale sculptures, the artist often depicted Baroque-era women dressed in opulent clothing. Wahliss began his pottery career as the traveling salesman for a porcelain factory at age 30. He later left to found his own ceramics company, and soon began exporting porcelain goods across Europe. To meet the high demand for his pottery and sculptures, the artist opened his own department store, Wahliss, in Vienna's city center. Near the end of his career, he abandoned his design work to move to the rural town of Velden, where he opened a luxury hotel. Wahliss died on July 18, 1900 in Vienna, Austria.
