This edgy-chic and sophisticated work of Modernist Op Art is by the manufactory Krautheim of Selb Bavaria, Germany.

The elegantly shaped cylinder form features two inwardly curved panels that give prominence to the tightly woven and raised-relief pattern décor. The relief pattern is beautifully painted in a rare antique bronze effect, interwoven with tones of Sage green and dark-toned lacquering, giving the overall piece its nod to Brutalist design.

The combination of the juxtaposing gloss glazed porcelain elements and the bronzed, textured décor makes this piece tactile and striking.
