Reddy for Christmas - part III

Carstens West German Modernist Oil Jar Vase with Dripping Red Glazing (LEO Design)

We end our trio of handsome red Christmas vases with this beauty by Carstens, West Germany. The form is classic—a basic oil jar—but the dripping red glaze (over black) gives the piece a lot of movement and (somewhat eerie) style. Click on the photo above to learn more about it.
