LCT Tel-El-Amarna Egg Shaped Vase with Stand
« on: September 14, 2017, 08:59:44 PM »
I picked up this vase.  No signature but this seems to be true of the one that James Julia offered at their spring 2015 auction.  Has anyone seen a signed one?

General info:

Examples of signed "Tel-El-Armarna" items can be viewed at: Sotheby's New York 2104 sale, lots 1 - 7 (use "navigation arrows to scroll through from No. 1 ). All are signed ("engraved").

Note that "Tel-El-Armarna" referes only to the banded decoration around the neck or base of various "Favrile" items.

Also note the comments in the Catalogue Note for Lot 1, where the term "Tel-El-Armarna" is discussed as being a currently accepted alternative for "Egyptian Collar" but which should perhaps be known as "Byzantine". The reason given is that "Tel-El-Armarna" was apparently intended for a shade of blue, rather than a form of decoration.

Perhaps only Vases with "Tel-El-Armarna" decoration were signed and the Egg-shaped items were not?

Edited to correct my misspelling of "Armarna".

Thanks for the information, Kevin.  I was unaware of most of it.  That was quite a price tag for the sothebys vase! Not sure about the egg shape vs vases theory but it certainly warrants consideration.
