This stunning example of Art Nouveau/Jugendstijl ceramics was made in Bohemia, now the Czech Republic, between 1900 and 1910. Richly colored and highly glazed, this vessel appears strikingly modern in its simple form and heavily sculpted "drip" decoration. It is as lushly embellished as the colorful early paintings of Gustav Klimt and as vibrantly expressive as the canvases of Egon Schiele.

The best pieces of the Wahliss factory were those done in the Art Nouveau fashion that are distinguished by their curved and sensuously flowing lines, and their naturalistic representations of flowers, animals, and female nudes.
