Now becoming hard to find vintage mid-century modern'Guitar' vase by West German studio Roth Keramic and designed by Dorothea Roth. It is a superb example of the West German Art Pottery Fat Lava style, it has real presence! Roth Keramik 70s Fat Lava Guitar Vase. An early 70s Roth Keramik 312 form Guitar vase, finished in the matt RED and thick crusty BLACK over white Fat Lava relief to the sides of the vase. An early example of this colourway, this piece is finished in a coarse, random fat lava relief.It has been factory treated to its base with a protective lacquer, it retains its faded original. West German stamp which is faintly visable (see photos).
The vase is in very good undamaged vintage condition, with some. Irregularities to finish as you should expect with any Fat Lava piece, as can be seen in the full 360 degree photo pack provided. It is a piece that is demonstrative of the innovation and experimentation that went into the production of the Red and Black colourway.
It typifies the perfect imperfection of the Fat Lava glaze technique. 12" (305mm) High x 9.25" (230mm) Wide. It is heavy and 3 in breadth in bright gloss red with black lava glaze creating the pattern. There is no descernable maker's mark or size code on the base, but that is not unusual for Roth ceramic. There is a faint outline stamp (see image) W Germany.
It is in excellent condition with no chips, cracks or repairs. Roth Keramic was founded in the 1960's by Edmund Roth, with all designs thought to be by Dorothea Roth. A now rare and much sought after classic of the genre. Please see my other listings for more mid-century pottery and glass.
