This is a striking cobalt blue wall pocket or hanging vase with gold trim and two separate flower receptacles. The photo just doesnt do the amazing, deep blue color justice. You can see from the back of the vase that it is marked echt Kobalt, or real cobalt. There is a gold tone cord at the top of the vase for hanging. It is a Midcentury piece, German art pottery, and is likely a souvenir from the 1960s or thereabouts.
