Antique Thoune Swiss Art Pottery Slipware Glaze Vase with Floral Design (Code 1383)
A late 19th century Swiss Thoune pottery vase. These slipware items made in the Thoune area were popular with tourists in the late 19th and early 20th century. Along with the lake it was a spa region visited for health benefits. This example has a mark I've not seen before, however there were very many small workshops producing all kinds of designs in similar style. The vase stays with floral decoration throughout over the brown glaze and earthenware body. Incised marks to base.
Some glaze chips around the rim, minor wear. Slight glaze chips around belly. Some glaze flaws from production around the base area.
