    Hjorth Back Vase 1900s.
    I once owned a Hjorth black terracotta vase with relief poppies as illustrated. It had a separate removable lid with a segmented relief replicating the top of the seed pod of a poppy after flowering. Unfortunately I no longer have either the vase or its lid.

    In the various illustrations of the vase that I have seen, there has not ever been a lid on the vase.

    You will note that the body of the vase ends at the top with a blank collar. The lid which I mentioned fitted over this, to rest on the part of the vase that was in relief. The lid was when inverted like a round black dish.
