Luzern, Switzerland: Studio Vase with Relief in Black and White
A hand made ceramic vase made in Luzern, Switzerland. I am not sure for which pottery there, or as to the date for this item, although it is very similar to ceramic items from West Germany and Italy which are from the 1960s-70s. Check out my Italian 'Strawberry' vase for example.
Black and white always packs a punch and the highly textured relief adds an element of pleasing spikiness.
In good vintage condition, with some fleabites or glaze misses to the decor, as you can see in the close up shot, but not at all noticeable normally.
It is 12 cm (5") high and weighs 216 g.
The figurine (nfs - Otto!) is for scale and measures 8 cm / 3".
