Product description

Retro vintage pottery vase - horizontally ribbed with mottled bluish-green glaze
 
A pleasing example of a retro pottery vase of genuine c.1950s-60s vintage, moulded in a horizontally ribbed pattern, and finished in shiny bluish-green glaze with off-white mottling and pale brown streaking to most of the exterior, the remainder of the surface (except the unglazed foot and a small unglazed patch to the lower exterior) being finished in grey-green and brown satin glaze. The vase bears the impressed number "11815" to the base; the style of this mark and that of the glaze suggest that this is a post-war West German piece, although the ribbed pattern and blue-green colour hark back - probably unintentionally - to 1930s Art Deco.
 
Although it shows some signs of age (see condition description below), together with various manufacturing irregularities consistent with its character, the vase remains both usable and displayable, and would make a lovely addition to a vintage or retro-style decorative scheme - or to a collection of mid-20th century pottery.
