Miklos Zsolnay founded his company in Hungary in the mid 19th Century and was instrumental in the invention of many different processes in the production of ceramics. Initially dealing in stoneware and earthenware, the company is now better known for its art pottery and other ceramic goods. In the early 1900’s the company embraced the Art Nouveau style and achieved world acclaim for its art pottery pieces.
Early vases were made in an hourglass figure shape that resembled the women of the time with very thin waists and bulging bottoms. The most prized vases are those made from a red iridescent glaze and the gold lustre vases that the company is most famous for. These “eosin” glazed pieces were named after Eos the ancient Green goddess of the dawn. Other colors in this type of glaze (green and blue) are easier to find and more reasonably priced.
