AK Keramik pocket wall vase
The AK Keramik factory was founded by Alfred Klein in 1934. Its production consisted of coffee and tea pots, pitchers, jars and vases. In the 1930's and 1940's the output sported the highly recognisable 'Laufglasuren'; fluent glazes often with predominantly mint green and brown hues with highlights of red and orange. Pocket wall vases were popular items some 30 years from the 1920's on.
This pocket wall vase has the distinct interwar colours and shape. It has a subtle wafer pattern.
The particular heart shape could indicate use as a decorative vessel for holy water for use in the home rather than a small flower arrangement.
