Rosenthal Studio Line “Polygon” Vase Pair, Circa 1980

Phillip Rosenthal began business in 1884 by purchasing white ware from Hutschenreuther (which Rosenthal now owns), and selling his wife's hand painted designs door to door. In 1891 he established a factory in Bohemia and began production of his own blanks for decoration. From 1897 to 1936 Rosenthal acquired several factories, and by WWII employed over 5,000 people. When the war ended, Rosenthal's son, Phillip, returned to Germany where he modernized the outdated factories and reestablished lost markets. Phillip quickly rebuilt the business by reaching new markets interested in the modern shapes and artistry of the company's table and decorative ware. After more than 125 years, Rosenthal continues to work with leaders in fashion and design to create their unique designs.

These delightful Rosenthal "Polygon" Vases, designed by Tapio Wirkala circa 1973, features a serene, modern form, executed in pure white porcelain.

Each piece is in mint condition, free of chipping, cracking, discoloration or restoration.

One vase is marked at the base with Rosenthal's crown mark and Studio Line logo used after 1962, while the other bears their additional 100th year jubilee mark, dating the piece to circa 1979 - 1980.

Each H 5.75", rim 3.5", base 2.5".
