Description
Rare late 19th century Hispano-Moresque small-scale copy of a vase based on the iconic "Gazelle Vase". The "Gazelle vase" was discovered in the late 18th century at the Alhambra Palace of Granada, and by the mid 19th century it had become an icon of the rediscovery of Spain's Islamic past. The craze for historicist styles throughout the whole of Europe at this particular period propelled potters in the area of Manises to revive the production of lustre ceramics for which their ancestors had been famous during the 14th and 15th centuries. - (CB.56)
