I bought this beautiful little object from the estate of a Danish couple together with my Kahler Keramik and Michael Andersen vases, and was advised that this too was Danish.
Made from dark stoneware clay this vase is beautifully shaped, and in particular the opening of it shows great skill. The lip of the vase is recessed but is turned under so that the wall of the vase remains quite thin all the way through. Nicely finished on the bottom it has been glazed in a mix of dark and lighter browns with a satin gloss.
75mm (3 in) tall and 100mm (4 in) wide
It is marked quite clearly on the bottom but I was not able to identify it.
Vetraio came to the rescue (again) and found it in getthatmonkeyoutofme's posts.
Heinz Engler, Germany, probably after 1957.
I would love some ideas from the cognoscenti! You around Jensen?
