Carstens Tonnieshof Ankara Monochrome Conical Vase (model 1218-38)
Although you could be forgiven for thinking that this lovely monochrome conical vase is West German, it is in fact Austrian, making it much rarer. The geometric design was created using a loosely applied white glaze, giving a nice contrast between the rigour of the pattern and the almost Pollock-esque but not quite fat lava glazing.
The piece is in good vintage condition, however there is a small chip at the top of the neck (see photo). This is not visible if turned to the wall, so this is still a great opportunity to acquire an excellent display piece.
