Amphora Pottery was founded by Alfred Stellmacher's son and sons-in-law at his encouragement and was located in Turn-Teplitz, Austria. The combined talents of skilled designers like Eduard Stellmacher, Paul Dachsel and a host of decorators from the Special Ceramics School of Teplitz allowed Amphora to quickly develop a unique genre of Art Nouveau ceramics. Amphora had an unparalleled concern for fine and high-quality design, as well as Alfred Stellmachers use of ivory porcelain, a matte yellowish material that was malleable, yet resistant to high temperatures. Amphoras stylistic diversity, combined with its unwavering standard of quality, made it a world leader among manufacturers of art pottery.
