Amphora produced a series of allegory vases for different countries. I believe this one is for Germany. The artistry is superior, as well as the color and workmanship. Signed both Amphora and R, St. & K, one of the best companies. 7¼" tall x 5½" diameter. Mint condition.

What a super example of Amphora ceramics at its Art Nouveau best. It really doesn't get better nor more Art Nouveau than a beautiful maiden surrounded by iris flowers, a dragonfly and a spider web. You would expect a huge, 21" example to have some restoration, but even on close inspection, there doesn't appear to be any. Apparently unsigned, but obviously Amphora. For the best collections.

I've been buying important items from one collection for several years. This is my latest purchase. It's a really great Amphora vase with two lizards and many applied ferns. The size is monumental, 16" tall and bulbous. Just fantastic! Artist signed on the side "Ed Stellmacher". The signature on the underside reads "Stellmacher Teplitz". Excellent condition with no apparent damage or restoration, which is quite an accomplishment for a vase this size with so many parts that protrude from the body.

Wow! Isn't this vase gorgeous? It's the epitome of Art Nouveau with maiden's busts, spider webs and flowers. Great size at 14"! The wooden stand was only for illustrative purposes. The vase has great signatures on the underside, both Amphora and R,St&K. Great condition with the exception of a few chips on the tips of some of the flowers, which I've had professionally restored. (The photos were taken before restoration, so you can see one of the chips on a flower tip.) This is a killer vase for the best collections.

I bought this vase in Europe, supposedly in perfect condition, but it's not. There is a 2" hairline crack extending from the foot rim up. It's very difficult to see, but it's there. It was too expensive to ship back to Europe, so I'm selling it as is. It's a bargain for a wonderful Amphora dragon vase that's worth $3,000, if perfect. Beautiful work, color and detail. 7½" tall. Signed.
