LONDON.- Tall bottle vase with disc, a rare and important piece by the Austrian-born British ceramicist Hans Coper, set a new world auction record for the artist when it sold for £655,500 at Bonhams Design sale in London on 4 October. Made circa 1968, the work had been estimated at £80,000-120,000.

Marcus McDonald, Bonhams Director of 20th Century Design said: “Coper is one of the great names of 20th British ceramics. This very rare vase was a true masterpiece, and I am not surprised that there was such keen bidding in the room, on the phones and over the internet with the exciting outcome of a new world auction record for a work by Coper.”
