Rare Symbolistic Art Nouveau "Amphora" vase from the "Edda" series, named after two mediëval Icelandic poems of Norse mythology.
These series were regarded as the most remarkable of Amphora's productions in 1900.
The common characteristic of all Edda vases is the typically dynamic modeling with evoking winter landscapes with dripping ice, in which we also find the connection between winter and Norse Mythology.
The series consist of 21 models, of which this vase belongs to the most representative ones.
The vase bears the signature of Edward Stellmacher in a heart on the body and under the base the fine raised Edda stamp, with swastika and imressed Amphora.
