Large Harrach 'Etruscan' style vase.
« on: February 03, 2016, 01:26:32 PM »
Arrived today and identified by Warren as Harrach c. 1865, 13 inches tall, I'm sure the mark says W & H, can't get a better image, the second picture is closer to the actual colour. ;D

Hi keith

Is it transfer printed?  and is it possible to get a clear close up of the picture please when you have time?

Also, just curious, is the top rim cut and polished flat or is it firepolished?

Nice :)

Hello M, thought you might notice this one  ;D it appears to be transfer printed with dark lines and gilding finished by hand, the rim is round then gilded, best I could do with the pictures...

Thanks for the pictures.  Does the base have a polished pontil mark?

Have you looked at the picture through a lens? If it's printed you should be able to see the dots from where the transfer was screen printed.

Had a good look just with a lens , it has no dots and is very smooth, all 'painted' then ?  ;D

Yep, painted, though the outlines might be a transfer - check them

No dots anywhere, the lines look painted and in answer to m's question it has no pontil mark.
