Weighty Subject

Made in the 1940s, this Danish floor vase has historical relevance built right in. The Second World War effected every industry resulting in all rations going to fight German occupation. Necessity proved the mother of invention as authentic "Stoneware" became the norm. This Sandstone vessel is a terrific example... rock solid at 14" tall and between 20 and 30lbs. The surface has the speckled texture of pebbles.
