A vintage ceramic vase from West German producer Carstens - made in their Austrian factory and dating back to the early 1960s.
A typical shape for the era, this large vase has a central band decorated in a bright, tribal style geometric glaze to give it bags of impact.
Glazed turquoise blue on the inside.
In good vintage condition, no cracks or chips, but with quite a few tiny fleabites to the dark brown part of the decor (see the last photo). These could easily be tidied up, but I prefer to leave that up to the buyer as some people don't like touch-ups.
