Vintage 8.25" KUTAHIA Athens Handmade Vase, Parthenon Acropolis at Sunset (ca. 1950s)


8.25" Handmade Vase
Parthenon (The Acropolis)
Athens, Greece

A very lovely souvenir vase hand-made by Kutahia, Athens, Greece, featuring a colorful sunset behind the Parthenon on Athen's historic Acropolis. The vase is highly glazed, very glossy (as you can see from the light reflections from the camera flash and the nearby window), with vibrant sky blue, pink, orange, and yellow hues offseting the somber gray of the neck and rim, and a very clean white interior.

I believe this vase would date to the 1950s (although it might be older, perhaps 1930s). There is a clear mark on the bottom with the Kutahia logo and the words "KUTAHIA / Athens / Handmade / in Greece."

This vase measures 8.25 inches high at the rim. The rim is 4.5 inches wide, and the foot ring is 2.75 inches wide. It is in good condition. There is one very shallow flake on the rim edge (see closeup photo of rim), and light overall crazing (no heavy cracks or hairlines). There are light bumps and pits that are original to manufacture.
