In 1853 Miklos Zsolnay established a ceramics company in which the successful mass-production of industrial and architectural wares supported an art pottery division. Zsolnay's historical revival work was on par with its competitors and was internationally acclaimed. In 1893, under the influence of Clément Massier's luster ware, Zsolnay's ceramics chemist developed a rich iridescent glaze, marketed as "eosin." Used in flamboyantly contrasting color schemes, eosin glazes were applied to detailed sculptural work and also to simple vases, achieving results that include Fauve landscapes, Tiffany-like abstraction, and applied and free-standing sculptures of women, animals, and mythological subjects.
