Hand PAINTED Vase 4 SEASONS - Antique -
The decoration features four feathered friends: woodpeckers, swans, a warbler on a holly branch and a blue jay on a snowy pine bough (not shown in photos).
The backstamp is an importers mark used by four different companies between 1890 and the end of Austrian exports during WWI. The blank was almost certainly made by Thun in Klasterec, Bohemia (now Czech Republic). There is no decorators mark.
Circa late 1800s to early 1900s
Measures 5 inches on each side, 4-1/4 tall
Very good condition. No chips, cracks, dings or other damage. Some gold wear.
Please see our inventory for more Austrian, Bohemian and Czechoslovakian porcelains. As well as fine antiques of all kinds.
Appreciation to Ginni Snodgrass for information on the backstamp.
