Evoking a gem-studded medieval beaker, this vase reflects a romanticized image of the Middle Ages that influenced the Art Nouveau aesthetic. The green drip glaze, suggesting old age by imitating the patina of oxidized copper, intensifies the notion of mystery associated with the past.

Georges Hoentschel was an interior designer with an elite international following. He engaged sculptor Jean Carriès to create Japonist ceramics for his more advanced clients. Work done by Emile Grittel and others under Hoentschel's name was noted for gold glaze effects and the frequent use of metal mounts. Much of the inspiration was drawn from floral forms. Hoentschel's talent and taste were officially confirmed when he was commissioned to design and oversee the decoration of the pavilion of the Union Centrale des Arts Décoratifs at the Paris Universal Exhibition of 1900.
