Stoneware vase made by Germany’s Ceramano. The pattern is called “Amon” and dates back to the early 1960s.
During this period, much ceramic production in Europe was influenced by designs of past cultures and cave drawings.
The Amon is clearly inspired by Egyptian hieroglyphics. The vase displays the silhouette of a human figure and a bird as shown in the images.
The vase has a cylinder form and measures just under 22cm in height. The diametre of its base is 5.5cm. The brown glaze is mottled and has a slight lava texture to the touch.
The vase is in great condition with no chips or cracks.
The base is marked “111/2 AMON CERAMANO W. GERMANY”. The mould number and CERAMANO are also impressed.
Ceramano was a factory which opened in 1954 and produced limited ranges of generally higher quality items compared to other manufacturers at the time. Due to strong competition, Ceramano attempted to move into more mass produced and lower quality items without success. The factory closed in 1989. For more details about Ceramano CLICK HERE.
