Hello, this is my 1st post.

I'm hoping someone can point me in a direction of search or even provide a crumb of information in discovering more about the attached.

I've been searching the internet for a similarly styled Amphora compotes, centerpieces, allegory, etc. with no similar comparisons.

The only solid information uncovered was dating it to 1906 - 1910 by its Faience mark.

It does not fit in with much of Amphora's pottery. Though, I've noted two Art Nouveau works with the Frog Prince theme. One by Amphora and one by Royal Dux.

Attached are two views and one with close-ups of the marks. It about 10" tall, by 15" long and 9" wide.

Also, I have not seen any Amphora with the impressed star mark. I'm hoping this will be a clue.

I appreciate any input from your collective experiences.

Thanks,
James.

I found a reference to AMPHORA WERKE REISSNER. There are some on eBay stamped Amphora and the crown
