Royal Rudolstadt Vase with Oriental Motif
 PP-36   Royal Rudolstadt Vase 

                      Rudolstadt Vase with Oriental Motif  Description: This German vase with an embossed Oriental design was made by Lewis Straus & Son, particularly the branch in Rudolstadt, which gives the RW mark (Rudolstadt Works).  The US import branch of the company is known as New York and Rudolstadt Pottery Co.  The line has often been called Royal Rudolstadt, but that name was actually registered by a different German company. (Information comes from 

The vase dates to around 1900 (possibly 1907 if the impressed mark is a date) and may well have been originally sold at Macy's since the two companies had a special arrangement.  It's certainly a high quality piece and further proof that the work from Straus & Son deserves much more attention than it has received. 

Dimensions: Height is about 8".

One handle has been reglued, but it was a very clean break leaving little sign of the damage.  You can see the condition in the detail shots.   The price takes the damage into account. Of course, all our sales are fully guaranteed.

Price:  $125 plus shipping and insurance.

Shipping:  $12.50 for Priority Mail and insurance within the US.
