Have a peculiar amphora teplitz with figural dragon handles and a beautiful painting of a bird catching a bee on the body. Can’t find a similar pottery stamp, though I can tell it says “Stellmacher” and can somewhat read “Teplitz.”
It’s ormolu, amphora grotesque, very art nouveau….
How would I get it appraised? Any ideas?
Also: how can I tell if it’s a replica or an original? It has some chips and damage and just want to know if it’s worth seeking repair or not and I can’t find anything similar on the Internet other than I’ve found a Stellmacher piece with the exact same dragons on it…
Any suggestions for a novice/new collector?
