A stunning Rörstrand majolica handled urn vase, decorated on both sides with the head of Medusa, snakes coiling around the vase and the handles, with foliage and ivy, as well as moths, decoratining the surface of the vase. Unknown designer, but clearly inspired by Palissy ware, made in Sweden. The vase is marked with the Rörstrand "Iron Stone China" hallmark in use from 1859 to 1869, an impressed AT and EA.

Condition: The vase is in very good condition, but has a small nick to the underside of the footrim, but with no other defects of any kind. The vase does have a few production flaws, there is a section of the snake on one side missing, and there is a small part of the tail of a snake missing on one of the handles. In both instances the "breaks" have been painted and glazed over, so either this was done on purpose (to give the vase some "age patina", making it look like an ancient artifact, which would make sense since it is from the neo-classical period) or it was decided before glazing that it wasn't an issue. Either way, this is still a stunning piece in amazing condition considering it's age. There are no signs of any restoration work.

Dimensions: The vase is 26cm tall (approx. 10 2/5 inches). A truly stunning and rare piece of early neo-classical Rörstrand majolica!
