This delicious work of mid-century Modernist design is by Emons & Sohne, ES Keramik of Germany.
The simple Solifleur bud vase form is an excellent canvas for the glaze decor. The base glaze is a matte charcoal brown that is visible through Sgrafitto decor that sits on the collar of the vase. The Sgraffito decor is an interlocking of soft lemon sherbert yellow and mint green gloss glaze.
The remainder of the vase is overlaid with the matte stone-coloured and tightly bubbled foam lava and the piece is finished with an accent of the yellow glaze on the interior of the vase.
This piece makes an elegant addition to any lava or drip glaze collection and would suit a room with Vintage, Mid Century or Modernist theme inspired decor.
Excellent, no chips, cracks or crazing as might be expected for a piece of this age; there is light use wear on the interior of the vase that is commensurate with the age of the piece - please see photos as part of the condition report.
c. 6.4" / 16.2 cm tall x c. 1.6" / 4 cm diameter across the base of the vase. Width (across widest point): c. 3.1" / 8 cm. Unpackaged weight: c. 0.2 kg / 230 g
Vase will be securely packaged and shipping will be insured.
