Bay Keramik, West Germany: Vase 403 with 'Kongo' Decor
A large West German Vase dating from 1959. The decor, 'Kongo', was designed by Bodo Mans for Bay Keramik.
It's a black engobe glaze, very matte, decorated with thick, glossy patches of colour and wavy sgraffito lines.
In very good vintage condition, especially as this is a fragile decor. There are a few small marks and a glaze rub on the rim, also a glaze drip on the foot, all of which I have tried to highlight in the photos.
An iconic late 1950s piece, standing at 26 cm (10") high and 1178g in weight.
