It must have been 20 years ago that the first of the limited edition M.C. Escher oval vases was published by Cordon Art. Cordon Art are the rightful representatives and copyright holders for all the works by M.C. Escher and they decided to expand this right with several editions. Of course there was the sphere which is in high demand nowadays, but there was also the very first oval vase. The Vase was produced by Schoonhoven ceramics and came with a certificate of authenticity. A limited edition of only 450 copies and all vases signed with a signature of M.C. Escher and hand numbered on the vase itself. A beautiful object and an object worthy of the design of M.C. Escher. The vase sold out quickly and inspired Cordon Art to launch several other ceramic products. Among them a plate , a ceramic box and a newly designed vase. You can imagine that these were sold out within a year or so.
All the above products were at one time for sale at http://www.ftn-books.com
The succes of the above products meant the edition of another vase and this being the last one of the early vases i know of. This vase was bought and sold by me several times and now the end of my inventory is near. I only have 2 vases left of this beautiful “SKY and WATER vase”. A vase from a limited edition of 450 copies, signed with a (printed) signature, hand numbered and with certificate of Authenticity in its original box. Only this weekend the price will still be USD 495,–, after the 9th of February 2017 the vase will be USD 795,–

A large increase in price but a necessary one, because i just learned from a colleague he had sold the same vase to the US for USD. 1000,–
