Product Description

A c1905 very large Vienna Porcelain Style porcelain vase, by Ernst Wahliss, in very good condition.

The baluster shaped vase is decorated in a deep blue overall, but with a beautiful cartouche, containing hand painted classical mythology image of Mars and Venus on a chariot. The quality of the painting is superb and made even more impressive by the size of the vase. The surrounding area has been decorated with gilded borders and garlands and lines of raised ‘moriage style’ pearl dimples. The base of the vase has selection of marks. There is the ubiquitous shield or beehive in blue from the Vienna Porcelain factory. There is also the crown on shield transfer mark the Ernst Wahliss Turn-Teplitz factory in the now Czech Republic. The transfer has been applied backwards, hiding the Turn and Vienna banner. There is also a mould model 6564 and some ink written numbers. A really beautiful piece of porcelain, often sold as original Royal Vienna.

Ernst Wahliss was born in 1836. He was a leading Vienna (1863) retailer in porcelain and ceramic goods. His business was so successful that he was able to open another store in London. In 1894 Ernst Wahliss decided to take over the Alfred Stellmacher factory in Turn-Teplitz. He renamed the factory to Ernst Wahliss Kunst, Porzellan und Fayence Fabrik. Ernst died in 1900, but 2 years later, his sons, Hans and Erich, bought 600 moulds from the Imperial and Royal Porcelain Manufactory in Vienna. Using these moulds they started making reproductions of Vienna porcelain. In 1905 the company was renamed to Alexandra Porcelain Works Ernst Wahliss. By 1907, the factory was sold and production shifted from porcelain to faience. The company closed after WWI.
