CONTACT US HERE about this item.
An extraordinary chimney vase with a rare, abstract décor known as 'Toscana' in fluorescent green, dark blue, and violet from MAREI KERAMIK. Marked with form no. 2003, it stands 25.5 cm high. Produced in the 1970's.
MAREI was founded by Jean Fuss in 1948 when he and Josef Emons dissolved a longtime partnership, the latter establishing ES Keramik (Emons & Söhn) concurrently. At one time MAREI—a shortening of Majolikafabrik Rheinbech Jean Fuss & Söhn—was thought to be a fairly small company whose production peaked in the 1950’s. Better research has revealed that it was a major manufacturer and did some of its best work in later decades. Well-known designer Bodo Mans was employed by MAREI in its earliest years. Their iconic designs include the Penguin Vase and the Chimney Vase series. MAREI ceased production in 2016.
