This is a fantastic piece of pottery by Otto (1908-2007) and Gertrud Natzler (19natz708-1971) in a rare glaze of volcanic green. The earthenware vessel is in a rare square shape that pinches at the bottom. It is signed in ink, the identification number has fallen away and is missing but I am told by experts that this piece dates from the 1930’s. It is a large form, seven inches square at the top and six inches tall. It has had two small hairlines that were expertly repaired. soldnatz6 natz5 natz4
