CONTACT US HERE ABOUT THIS ITEM.
A fantastic obelisk form vase from the little known West German company Elma Keramik, It stands 29cm tall and sports a pale yellow interior along with a beautiful brown and white flowing lava glaze highlighted by hints of pale blue/gray. The depth of the effect is remarkable, and resembles lichen. photos really cannot do it justice.
ELMA-KERAMIK LIEBHART KG was founded in Ransbach-Baumbach in the years following WWII and produced high quality ornamental ceramics in the modern style into the early 1960s. Unfortunately, Elma-Keramik is another of the small ceramics factories that existed in post war Germany for which very little is known. No detailed information about the people involved in the design and manufacture has yet been found, although there may be some connection with Max Liebhart, who in 1955 was the technical director of the nearby Staffel Stoneware Factory
