A beautiful, biomorphic vase which is decidedly bird-like. I love the way the handle follows the shape of the vase and enhances it.
Glazed in a burgundy red, with the top half glazed a contrasting cream that drips and fades into the red.
Made by West German manufacturer Ü-Keramik/Uebelacker, dating from 1954.
In very good vintage condition, with one light scratch to the body which I couldn't capture in the photograph.
The vase is 23.5 cm (9") at the highest point.
