Carstens Uffrecht, 1930s Germany: Art Deco Trinket Box

Regular price £42.50 Sale

An Art Deco ceramic box from German producer Carstens Uffrecht - dating back to the 1930s.

A beautifully smooth, rectangular box with curved edges and a perfectly fitting lid, richly glazed in cream, caramel, ochre and orange.

This is a pre-fat lava piece: Carstens went on to produce some great Fat Lava pottery after the war - the Uffrecht division was in what would become East Germany and was renamed VEB Haldensleben.

The box measures 10.5 x 8.5 x 5 cm (4 x 3 x 2") and is in perfect condition.

There are a few small orange glaze splashes to the inside, which will have occurred during the manufacturing process.
