This vase features a snake hidden among the stems and leaves of an arrowhead plant. In overall form, subject, and design--most notably the pierced neck--the vase closely resembles models made by the Copenhagen porcelain manufacturer Bing & Grondahl at the turn of the century. The Danish wares were illustrated in the journal "Keramic Studios," and Edith Lautrup, a decorator at Bind & Grondahl prior to working at Tiffany Studios, also may have been instrumental in the transmission of their designs.
