Antique ROYAL DUX CZECH Bohemian Vases Artist Signed Pair Antique Royal Dux
Antique ROYAL DUX CZECH Bohemian Vases Artist Signed Pair Antique Royal Dux Figural Vases Antique Royal Dux Vases Pair of Royal Dux Figure Vases For your consideration, a pair of upright shaped vases flanked by Art Nouveau beautiful handles. Made in the purest Art Nouveau style that gave this manufacture and its contemporaries Amphora and Turn Teptlitz so much prestige. Beautiful naturalistic composition in high relief depicting maidens, this pair of vases tell a story, the story as I see it is: the one sad maiden is holding a jug/vessel, but it's empty, as noted by the figurehead above whose mouth is closed and looking so sad, as well as the maiden below, she also is looking confused and sad. The other vase, the water is flowing freely from the mouth of the figurehead into the maiden's jar. To me this art tells a story which is almost active and alive sort of speaking. Very important criteria for art inclusive of movement which the one vase also demonstrates with the running water. Art that gives us an insight into the artistic process of the given artists' virtuosic skill. In the background there is a village scene with trees and their reflections highlighted in the water. These are very beautiful and fine quality large Pottery Vases. The Vases would date c1900 and are a wonderful example of the Art Nouveau period. The Maidens are molded in high relief and their bodies are actually molded out from the Vase body. The Vases are marked with the Royal Dux pink triangle with an E. These splendid vases are about 12 tall and in very good condition, no repairs or cracks Model numbers 1214 and 1215. Condition is very good in my subjective opinion for their age, age appropriate wear, please preview the pictures with consideration of such.
