A beautiful and colorful floral Art Nouveau pitcher, vase or ewer made by Habsbourg-ware A. Stellmacher Co. of Austria. This bisque porcelain piece is circa 1890s. The Alfred Stellmacher Imperial & Royal Porcelain Co., founded in 1859, produced high end porcelain until 1894 when it was then purchased by another company.
The front and back have different designs. While both are floral, the front is larger and features a cascading bouquet of yellow, blue and pink flowers on greenery with grey faded leaves and some gold painted accents. The flowers are all two-toned using a dark and light color on the petals.
The back is a simple design of a couple of yellow flowers, leaves and gold accent color. The ornately shaped handle is covered in gold. The top rim and the bottom rim around the base have the gold accent color as well.
The top opening has a very, very slight spout shape - it is not quite round but not quite a distinct spout. There are some raised designs around the neck of this piece. The neck section is painted a very pale yellow that fades into the cream colored background of the small vase/pitcher/ewer. The neck section is ribbed and has a fine gold ring at the bottom of the neck before it widens into the bulbous section of this container.
Measures 5" high and has an approx. 3 1/2" diameter at widest part. The base has a 1 3/4" diameter.
The bottom of this fine pitcher or ewer is stamped HABSBOURG-WARE AUSTRIA A. STELLMACHER in brown with a flower hallmark in the center of the circular stamp.
In nice antique condition with no chips or cracks. Light wear commensurate with antique age in various places especially around neck area - see photos for detail.
