This unusual vintage flying saucer vase is in the style of West German pottery but doesn’t have the right markings. Marked faintly ‘AW’ on base, so possibly handmade. Beautiful rich chocolate-brown glaze and stylised floral motifs make this a fabulous art piece in its own right. Pre-loved marks: Scratching to glaze on base but not visible in use. Some bubbles in glaze as part of manufacturing process but mainly on underside of flying saucer. See photos for details.
