Ilkra Edelkeramik J.L. Knödgen (Ransbach-Baumbach, since 1892)

Ilkra produced some great shapes – see its charming jug vases or its ovoid items (such as shape 222, here in a Klinker vase variant, but also in decor 'Athens'). My own Ilkra favourites are the delicate, lightweight, wonderfully patterned white-and-grey 207-26 and the green modernist jug vase & bowl combo 2001-25 and 3500-20
