PAST COLLECTION ITEM
Monumental Sitzendorf potpourri porcelain vase with figural handles and floral decorations
This is a mid-century 4-piece German porcelain potpourri vase by Sitzendorfer with white glaze, extensive polychrome floral decorations and some gold trimmings. Overall it is 39" high , 22" wide (handle-to-handle), 13" deep and weighs 40 lb. It has an egg form finial decorated with flowers which fits into the lid. The Classical style vase is pierced in the upper portion. The 2 handles have figural mounts depicting 2 maidens with a jug and a bowl, respectively. One side of the vase shows an image depicting a courting couple in a naturalistic setting while the other side shows a boy playing the flute in front of a woman. The vase sits on a decorated stand with four inswept feet. It has the Sitzendorfer mark on the bottom of the base. Here is an online link showing the various marks used by Sitzendorfer over the years. Online I found a similar, but slightly smaller vase without the figural handles.
