Carstens, West Germany: Orange UFO Vase

Regular price £34.00 Sale

This amazing specimen is a UFO type handled vase by Carstens Tönnieshof of West Germany. Dating from the 1960s-70s, the sticker shows it belongs to one of the special series of ceramics from the 'Atelier' Range (the same sticker is also used for Luxus range vases, but this design is known to be part of the Atelier range.)

The design is attributed to Gerda Heuckeroth.

The condition is pretty good - prefect in fact, were it not for a sizeable glaze flake (pictured in the last photo) which is 15mm at the widest part. The vase still displays well, and we have reduced the price accordingly.

19cm (8") high and wide point, it weighs 1.25kg.
