Modern Ed Langbein Ceramic "Tic-Tac Toe" Vase, 1940s

About

A scarce, faceted vase by Ed Langbein with a original design of several tic-tac-toe games, resembling graffiti. Since games shown are won equally by both players and some a draw, Langbein is depicting a fair game for both players. A wonderful, irreverent example of mid-century modernism. A great gift perhaps for a game theorist, poker player or politician who has everything? Handwritten signature: ED.LANGBEIN.ORIGINAL ITALY. Langbein designed and produced his own line of ceramic and glass decorative items and tableware. He owned the Edward E. Langbein Giftware Company in Brooklyn from the 1930s through the late 1950s had his pieces produced in West Germany and Italy. His work was included in a 1957 exhibit at the Brooklyn Museum along with the that of Russel Wright, Raymond Loewy and Eva Zeisel.
