An Art Deco style porcelain faience posy vase produced in Hungary by Zsolnay of Pecs and dating to the late 1950s - early 1960s. This vintage vessel is decorated with Zsolnay's signature eosin glaze in a rich and deep red. The glaze has a lively, metallic look created by an overall golden iridescence. The cracked ridges are colored with hints of iridescent blue and the interior is glazed with a darker golden high gloss finish.
This vase is illustrated in in Eva Hars' Zsolnay Ceramics Factory Pecs, pg. 112 and similar vessels with the same textured 'broken panel', reptile skin', or 'shriveled' decorative surfaces are pictured on pg. 170 of Federico Santi & John Gacher's Zsolnay Ceramics Collecting a Culture.
The vase is in very good, undamaged condition, measuring 5.5 in. H. with the Zsolnay Pecs Five Churches mark in a shielded circle alongside Made in Hungary printed on base. Zsolnay used this mark from 1925 through the 1970s.
