This retro flowerpot with a thick, cream-colored glaze in high relief from Carstens of Germany probably dates back to the 1970s. It is a sizeable jardiniere, weighing 2.5 pounds. The base has the raised Carstens logo, as shown in the photo, along with the production numbers 226-18.
SIZE: 7-1/2" diameter; 6-3/4" high
CONDITION: Excellent. No chips or cracks. There is one line of crazing on the inside - doesn’t go through and is not a hairline. The inside base of the cachepot has some light rust stains, (shown in the photo). I lightened these using vinegar, but did not try anything stronger and feel these could be gotten out with not much effort. The inside wall (sides) are clean.
What a great addition to your collection of mid-century modern German pottery - and it’s a wonderfully functional, high-style item, too.
