Amphora – Planter – Figural, Woman Carrying Baskets
Antique figural vase/planter of a woman in orange tones “burnished” in gilt carrying gilt green baskets, made by the Amphora Factory Riessner & Kessel, circa 1905-1910.
A woman is pleased with a harvest, an unknown bounty, the baskets on her back and in her left hand are left empty, for the owner to fill with whatever one may wish to situate inside, her right hand holds up the front of her apron where more of the mystery haul is contained. Her facial expression is serene.
