A nice, small porcelain vase from Rosenthal's aggressively Modernist and forward-looking Studio line. This line was started in 1961 to bring contemporary designers in to work in porcelain. The array of important designers has been staggering and the line continues to this day.
This vase was designed by Rosemonde Nairac, an English-born, German-educated designed who worked for the Studio Line from 1969 to 1990. Many of her 1970s designs are in the aggressively geometric style which was popular at the time. This pieces is a good example, with the porcelain slip-cast into an exceedingly simple, four-sided form of great complexity. It is prismatic, opening like a pocket vase at the top, and also resembling a folded napkin or men's handkerchief.
The only decoration is a single, hand-painted line of blue glaze along the rim.
Size: 6.5" tall, 4.75" wide, 2.25" deep.
Condition: as new, no wear or damage.
Mark: Rosenthal Studio Line mark, Rosemonde Nairac signature mark on the bottom.
