Known for his interior design and glaze techniques, Georges Hoentschel emulates both of these known ideals in this baluster. With an emphasis on interior design throughout his career, Hoentschel created this baluster, which may have been featured in a staircase, or at least derived its aesthetic from such. The brown coloring and glaze highlight the draping and vines that surround the pot. With a smaller base, the pot's center begins to swell and then taper off and flare at the neck with a larger opening and lip, indicating a Japonist influence.
