This is a porcelain vase manufactured by Fischer J. Budapest. Ignác Fischer acquired his knowledge of arts and crafts in Hungary at his father’s manufacture of ceramics in Tata-Tóváros. He then further refined and developed his knowledge of ceramics at the Herend factory, also in Hungary. He was honored by the Austro- Hungarian court and allowed to use the title, von Fischer. He founded his own workshop in Pest, Hungary, in 1864. (Pest is the eastern half of modern Budapest. It united with the western half (Buda and Obuda) to become one city in 1873. He dealt only with painting the china products of other factories, then he produced his own ceramics beginning in 1867. Fischer specialized in the production of ornamentally decorated ceramics. He was successful mainly with his Majolica ware, sold in Austria- Hungary and also sold for export.

This precious porcelain vase is enamelled and gilded with oriental motifs, it is armed with two curvy handles and a golden colour tulip-shaped opening. There is a company mark at the bottom of the vase, stamped in blue, ‘Fischer J. Budapest,’ Hungarian surnames are listed first in company names, and the initials "J" and "I" are the same letter-which is why the mark on the vase is "Fischer J." - (RL.5)
