Item Size: 6 inches high. Country or Region : Germany. It is equally possible that this piece is a genuine medieval piece of German stoneware. Im not knowledgeable enough to tell the difference. It may have been called modern with a sink and a nod because it may not have been obtained way back when in the right way. I really have no idea. Its as pretty special looking piece and once you have it your hands you can really see that.
