Beautiful Mid-Century Art Pottery Figural Vase depicting a Cheerful face in black glaze, bundled up for the Scandinavian winter. While the artist is unidentified, there is a Signature. I believe it says "WERSYER" on the side of bottom section. The piece clearly shows an experienced hand with graceful line and form. A very pleasing shape and size. The Face depicted seems cheerful and intelligent while being clearly bundled up for the cold. This item was acquired from the estate of a very prominent designer with incredible taste and style and whose home was filled with the finest of furnishing from the Modernist era. No chips or crazing. A small crack that is unseen on the underside of the bowl. It appears to be from drying in the kiln but does not go through to the other side and doesn't seem to affect water- tightness.
7 inches tall by 4.25 inches diameter with a 2.5 inch base.
