Carstens M12 vase, Manila Decor       SOLD

  Description: Carstens
                    Tönnieshof Vase M12, Manila decor by Heinz Siery,
                    West German PotteryThis West German pottery vase is Carstens shape M12, "Manila" decor designed by Heinz Siery, featuring a strong red top glaze with dark brown geometric images rather like hieroglyphs. The textured surface has a symbiotic relationship with the glazes with the texture allowing the underglaze to show through, and that gives definition to the symbols. These embossed glyph designs became popular in the early 1960s, especially for Carstens and Bay.  It was also a time when square or otherwise angular forms became more popular, and the flat surface certainly shows the designs well.

Dimensions: Height is about 10".

Condition: very good with just a small flake on the bottom, almost invisible in normal position (as seen in photos).  Of course, all our sales are fully guaranteed.

Price:  SOLD
