Offered here is a rare 1960s hand-made vessel by Piesche & Reif, East Germany. Deep carved sgraffito design in African tribal patterns or surface applied hand-painted decoration. The carved designs are in tones of off-white—the aged natural porcelain base. This fabricator is also known as VEB Lausitzer Keramik. Designed by Anton Piesche. Excellent vintage condition. Age related wear: few scuffs and glaze imperfections none of which would be considered damage. Size in the photos.
