Product description

Retro vintage pottery vase - matt cream with black / red / gold vine or ivy leaf design
 
A genuine c.1950s vintage retro pottery vase (manufacturer unknown), highly characteristic of its era in style and design. The vase, which measures approximately 17.4cm (6.85in) in height (vertically along the gently sloping sides), 9.9cm (3.9in) in diameter at the top and 11.6cm (4.55in) in diameter at the base, has a heavily textured exterior decorated in a matt cream painted finish with a pattern of vine or ivy leaves in black, red and (age-darkened) gold, whilst the interior has a bright red glossy painted finish; to the base is written the original pre-decimal retail price (6 shillings) in pencil.
 
Although there is some age wear to the exterior (mostly to the rim and foot), together with age wear including a few tiny chips and small marks to the painted surface of the interior, the vase remains in good condition overall for its age, especially considering that this style of pottery was originally sold as "cheap and cheerful", and intended to be fashionable rather than durable. As such, it would make a great decorative accessory for a 1950s-style room setting - and especially as part of an authentic recreation of a modest interior of the period.
