Cari Zalloni ceramic candle holder for Steuler
Designed by Cari Zalloni and produced in the 1960's or 1970's at Steuler, this vividly colourful candleholder stands 15cm (6 inches) tall and has a diameter of 10cm (4 inches). The glossy glaze looks yellow one moment; the next moment it's lime green – an effect that has been achieved by the use of a deep teal-coloured matte underglaze which gives the (probably bright yellow) overglaze varying degrees of greenish tinge which is particularly strong at the extremes. The base of the candleholder is embossed with the Steuler logo and the line number 203. It is in very good condition with a tiny 1 x 2mm glaze chip to the inner top rim and some minuscule glaze nibbles to the edge of the hole that houses the candle (see close-up image).
