In 1862, the MEISSEN® modeler Ernst August Leuteritz created the so-called "Serpent's Handle Vase", based on a vessel from Roman antiquity and thus a timeless work of art. In the following decades and centuries, it was to become one of the most beautiful and popular showpiece vases in MEISSEN® model history. For porcelain painter Victoria Schmidt, it was the serpentine handles that inspired her to design the Greek mythical figure Medusa. The limited edition vase features Medusa's head, which stands out through areas of light and shadow hand-painted in gold on the chocolate brown base.
In a sophisticated interior design, this limited edition work of art will fit perfectly.
