christa petroff-bohne – tea pot | abs | 1957-61

 

for years this tea pot was my most wanted item. it is from a wide range of hollowware for the quality gastronomy in the gdr. christa petroff-bohne, a fresh graduate from academy of the fine and applied arts in berlin, has been engaged to redesign the whole gastronomy range of the auer besteck- und silberwarenwerke, ten years earlier than arne jacobsens cylinda line! the logotype on the tea pot designed by klaus wittkugel stands for the “palast der republik”. my piece of this i have in daily use. [stainless steel, v. 500ml]
