Excellent condition.
The Memphis ceramics were named for lakes and rivers and Thun's design captures the flavor of a particularly exotic local. The angled vessel accentuates the natural repose of cut flowers and creates an Ikebana-like arrangement every time. One of the most popular designs of all the Memphis ceramics.
