A super Rosenthal (Germany) small white porcelain vase or pot.

The design is most likely by Tapio Wirkkala, but I can't find another like it or a design name. Model number 873, it's circa 1970s or 1980s vintage. Simple shape, tapering in slightly at the base, with slight undulating rim and feature vertical stripes. The raised stripes are slightly random - very much in the style of Wirkkala's other Rosenthal pieces. It's bright white and glossy in and out. Mid-century Modernist and minimalist in style.

Petite: 6.2cm tall x 8.5cm wide x 4.5cm deep - the right size for some daisies and buttercups if used as a vase. Stamped on the base with the Rosenthal logo, and indented with the model number 873. Very good condition. An unusual piece.
