It is my pleasure to offer you this exceptional and heavy porcelain statue of two boys towing a huge flowerpot produced by RStK AMPHORA BOHEMIA.

Eduard Stellmacher and the brothers Hans and Carl Rießner leaded together with Rudolf Kessler the company, which was grounded in 1892. They were specialized in unique styles and interesting glazes used to create what became known as Amphora pottery. They manufactured special luxury porcelain pieces, since 1894 also porcelain figurines and since 1895 fayences (vases and jardinières), and later special vases with animal motives and figurines. Animal figures, modern pottery with floral ornaments, china, stoneware and ivory-porcelain, decorated with enamel, soft colours and also gilded.

AMPHORA AUSTRIA strongly competed with Royal Dux for the best ceramics of that time. In 1905 Stellmacher left the company and Kessel left in 1910 so the brothers continued the AMPHORA WERKE RIESSNER from that moment.

Amphora represented at several exhibitions: 1893 in Chicago, the Highest Award, 1894 in San Francisco / gold medal, 1894 in Antwerpen – Diplome d`honneur, since 1897-98 winter exhibitions of the Vienna museum, 1900 in Paris – Medaille d`or, 1901 in St. Petersburg – gold medal, 1906 in Milan, and 1910 the world exhibition in Brüssel – Grand Prix. Some of the well known artist: Ferdinand Doblinger, Fritz Eichmann, Ernst Hegenbarth, Anton Heinzel, Max von Jungwirth, Michael Mörtl, Arthur Strasser and Voigt.

After WWII the factory was nationalized in 1945.

This piece of art is such a masterpiece. A lovely scene of two kids towing a huge flowerpot. It was designed by Eduard Stellmacher in 1900.

A huge and heavy item with a net weight of 3.2 kgs.

Marked with the imprinted model# 4281 / 5 and an embossed crown in conjunction with the company mark AMPHORA AUSTRIA as it was used between 1900 and 1902.

DIMENSIONS: L x W x H are 16.5 x 8 x 11.5 inches (=42 x 20 x 29cm).

CONDITION: EXCELLENT. There are 2 tiny hairlines of 0.5 inch where the boy pulls the pot, probably he pulled too hard. (see picture). Further no flaws at all and no restorations. So a wonderful and high quality item that is rarely found.

The white spots on some pictures are the reflection of my photo lights.
