Wonderful and rare antique vase featuring Greek mythology motif. My antique experts informed me this is likely Volkstedt / Karl Ens rather than Schafer Vater based on quality of design, color and porcelain.Slip decorated vase imitative of unglazed biscuit Wedgewood jasperware. White bisque pate-sur-pate slip relief on black ground, celadon green inside.
Decoration features a sea nymph / woman in flowing gown hovering over water from which a lobster is emerging. Very intricate detail, from the woman's face and and gown to the lobster in the waves. Measures 9.5" tall x 5" wide. With impressed marks 15 and 8454 and signed S.Not perfect but perfectly beautiful, n. O cracks or crazing, with small chip along underside of vase lip, nymph is missing two fingers and whatever "line" connected her to the lobster, other minor surface imperfections. Stunning regardless of its small imperfections. Visit our Cool Vintage Finds Store. This item is in the category "Pottery & Glass\Decorative Pottery & Glassware\Vases".
