Crystalline Glaze Vase

This is a very very rare and beautiful vase made by Meissen during the early 20th century. It is decorated with the elusive crystalline glaze whose outcome cannot be predicted during the firing and was thus not economically feasible to produce except a few rare examples. The only porcelain makers that even tried were Meissen, KPM, Sevres and Copenhagen besides off course the original chinese makers. This vase has a brownish background color on which the beautiful shiny golden crystals grew. I have never held a piece like this in my hands nor have I seen one outside of museums or books. The vase is in great condition but does have a hairline to one side. It does not show from the outside when on display and you need to search for it to manage to spot it from the outside but it is visible from the inside and on the rim where it is white. The vase is marked with the blue crossed swords underneath, a blue number 513., an incised T20, an incised 157/63. and an impressed 86. The piece is 5.125 inches tall and it has a diameter of 3.5 inches. Please email me for more information or other pictures.

Price is $2499
