Three partners bought a factory in 1853, which was renamed Dressel, Kister & Cie. The Passau company exported its porcelain all over the world. Even the First World War did not stop their growth. At the beginning of the 20th century, they acquired approx. 350 molds from the Höchst porcelain factory, which had closed in 1796. The porcelain figurines based on it were generally marked with the Höchst wheel (sometimes associated with the letter “D” or a bishop’s crook). In 1900 the factory was taken over by Rudolf Lenck and since 1903 it has been managed by the brothers Wilhelm & Rudolf Lenck. Between 1913 and 1922, the factory was owned by Lina Lenck. In 1922 she sold the business to the Aelteste Volkstetter and worked as the Passau branch of the Aelteste Volkstedter Porzellanfabrik. It went bankrupt in 1936. The factory was bought by the city and renamed Porzellanfabrik Passau. The factory was destroyed and looted at the end of World War II. We present a superb porcelain vase with lid, made by the Bavarian Passau factory during the Dressel Kister and Co. Period of time. It is hand modeled and raised in relief with two putti, flowers and volutes in a typical neo-rococo style, all polychrome painted by hand. A floral decor is hand-painted on a milky white glaze. This vase stands on four curled legs with a dome-shaped rejuvenating base with polychrome flowers and volutes in relief. This turns into a pear-shaped corpus, painted with a floral decor, surrounded by a wreath of polychrome flowers in relief. The back shows four C-shaped volutes painted in light green with light pink accents here and there. In the middle of the body float two almost naked putti with outstretched arms and spread legs. The body is painted skin-colored. A large curled volute springs from behind their bodies. The corpus merges into a cylindrical border at the top. Here rests a round raised lid with a large pine cone-shaped handle in the center that is covered in relief with many polychrome painted miniature flowers. Gilding was widely used over the entire surface. Everything is hand painted. The underside was left in unglazed biscuit. In the center we see a small round air hole. At the edge we see a cold hand-painted mark in blue cobalt, representing a bishop’s crosier. This is also called the “Crozier” sign. This was used during the Dressel Kister and Co. period of time. The number “2572” is also pressed into the pâte. The vase can thus be dated around ca. 1910-20.
 
Condition: chip on the inside edge of the lid, not visible externally, otherwise perfect!
