In 1947 Ernst Carstens opened the pottery Carstens Tonnieshof in Fredelsloh (Niedersachen) in West Germany.
He employed designers Trude Carstens, Gerda Heuckeroth, Dieter Peter, and A. Seide.
One of them created the 'Ankara' range of vases in geometric shapes in black iron oxide on blue cobalt oxide. They became popular in the sixties - and are coming back into popularity today. Therefore they are one of the more sought after ranges from Carstens Tonnieshof.
The pottery closed in 1984.
This fine example stands 14.5cm high, and 9cm wide (excluding the handle).
It is is excellent condition - no chips, cracks, or scratches.
