B B Hohenstein 12" Vase Bernard Bloch Uncin Bohemia early 20th cent Hand Painted
Here is a vintage Bernard Bloch & Company vase with raised clay cartouche showing the B B Hohenstein mark plus both raised, etched, and hand lettered numbers. It measures 12.25" high x 5.25" wide at the base and 4.25" wide at the mouth. The vase is probably faience, a glossy tin glazed earthenware that the factory was known for. It is highly decorated with an overall pattern of lavender flowers and buds, with hand painted black & green accents and yellow ochre sprigs, all on a white ground.
There are 2 hairline cracks at the rim that can be seen on the inside of the vase. One is about 2.5" long, the other is about 3/8" long. The longer one is visible from the outside but the pattern obscures it fairly well. The shorter one is invisible from the outside unless you follow it from the inside and look for it under a very bright light. It probably won't show up in the photos. It is a beautiful vase. We purchased it from an estate sale.
