I do love a biomorphic vase - these suggest a living organism without being figural. They tend to have a very soothing yet interesting kind of form.
This one has a beautiful burnished finish, with graduated gilding going into ombre shades of grey.
Made by Bay Keramik in the 1950s and marked 526/17 to the base.
In excellent vintage condition, although you can see a slight pit to the glaze in the first photograph.
The vase is 17 cm (7") high and weighs 454g.
