TALL YELLOW CONICAL VASE BY WILHELM DIEBENER FOR HANSA GOTHA KERAMIK (28cm)
CONTACT US HERE ABOUT THIS ITEM.
A yellow conical vase from the post Bauhaus Hansa Gotha Keramik workshop of Wilhelm Diebener. The tall 'teardrop' form is elegant in its simplicity of form and its classic matt yellow glaze. It would be beautiful in a wide variety of interiors.
WILHELM DIEBENER took over a well established Thuringian stove and wall panel factory in the 1930s. The original business had been founded by Hilmar Merten in 1850. When Diebener took over operations, he changed the name to 'Hansa Gotha Keramik Wilhelm Diebener Steingutfabrik', and committed himself to the production of a very high quality line of ceramics that adhered closely to Bauhaus principles. Following WWII, the workshop found itself partitioned into the GDR and continued production as VEB Hansa Gotha Keramik, but Diebener's reduced and simple forms combined with his very successful glazes in clear beautiful colors have assured that the ceramics produced in his workshop are still in demand today for their compatibility with classic, modern living styles, although they would not be out of place in a wide variety of interiors. Hansa Gotha Keramik closed in the early 1970s.
