Luxury Design, Past & Present
Dragons and other mythical creatures were the central subject at the Paris World Exhibition 1900 in Paris for Amphora, which are nowadays among the most stunning, desired and expensive objects by the company. Eduard Stellmacher, one of the directors of the house of Amphora, designed the bowl for this World Exhibition. Around 1920 some of the most important designs were reproduced among others our dragon bowl. The item is in good condition except for a professional Restoration near the head.
