Very Large West German Schlossberg Keramik “Staufen” Vase
Call for price
Coming in at a whopping 36cm high, this Schlossberg Keramik vase made in the early 1960s in West Germany, is as much a piece of sculpture as it is a ceramic item. Decorated in the “Staufen” design it is a visually stunning piece with a dark grey striped ground punctuated by raised white lines and panels of colour: red, yellow and a greenish-blue. It’s an eye-catching design with an Atomic style, slightly bulging middle and curved rim and at the size that it is, it would certainly make an impact in anyone’s home.
The vase is in excellent unchipped and uncracked condition. There are some very minor blemishes and one section of vertical white stripe is slightly lacking towards the top, but this appears to be from the original manufacturing process rather than anything that happened to the vase subsequently.
The base has the Schlossberg mark on it and the form number impressed into it. The mark is not absolutely distinct – it would seem to be “101/36” but we could be mistaken about that.
We welcome offers on this outstanding and unusual piece and are happy to discuss price and shipping/collection options with any interested parties.
