ANTIQUE RSTK AMPHORA VASE W ROOSTER SPIDER WEB
Price: $1300.00
Antique ceramic vase with handpainted and gilded chicken / rooster, spider and web and 3-dimentional openwork foliage and berries. Made in Austria by RSTK, circa 1899 - 1900 and almost certainly designed by Paul Dachsel. Measures 7 inches tall. Baluster shaped vase with elongated neck. 3 wings / handles float out from the surface of the vase. The neck consists of beautifully modelled openwork, overlapping foliage and berries, one of the specialities of Paul Dachsel and RSTK. They are entirely gilded with very subtle handpainted gold detail. Their execution is quite outstanding. THe body has two wonderful vignettes hand painted and gilded in raised gold and an interesting choice of palette. On one side is a Rooster stalking through the grass. In the background are tall bushes and trees, some hinted at in pale purple, others very richly highlighted in raised gilding. The chicken is wonderfully portrayed in red, green and gold, with exotic tail feathers and tough stance. His open beak and strength of claws along with the arrogant strut, make it clear that this is not a bird to be taken lightly. Another section of the vase, with a lot of creamy ground showing, has a number of highly defined, raised flowers amongst which is a very finely painted spider''s web and nestling under one of the flying arms, a black and gold spider. The bottom of the vase has a peach and gold Art Nouveau pattern. THe vase has the burnt orange RSTK logo that dates to 1899-1900. Impressed 530 AUSTRIA and 13. Good condition.
