A monumental vase in the Art Nouveau style by the well known Turn-Teplitz factory which produced some of the most innovative and stylish vases of the Art Nouveau period from which this vase descends. Its complicated design is matched by its enduring beauty, with four upturned arms - reminiscent of an octopus - providing support for the controlled widening conical body. The luscious green ground waxes strong and faint, muting in a mellow yellow. The red cherries add zing to the vibrant verdant green. The underside shows a stapled repair, most likely performed during manufacture, and this vase is most likely an experimental one at that. Amphora within an oval, is a known back stamp of the Turn-Teplitz factory. Height 15 1/2"
