  • Vase, ca. 1899
    Designer: Max Läuger (German, 1864–1952); Factory: Kandern Tonwerke
    German (Baden)
    Earthenware; H. 4 3/4 in. (12.1 cm)
    Marks: .MUSTERGESETZL.GES[CHTZT]; 184; MLK and Bavarian Shield in square (Läuger Kandern mark)
    Gift of Robert L. Isaacson, 1991 (1991.182.1)

    Läuger, who initially studied painting at the Académie Julian in Paris, used the clay body of his earthenware vessels as a substrate for vibrant colors. A technically ingenious design, this vase has a reddish brown–glazed body enclosed in an openwork frame of spiraling green bands.
