Small Retro German Pitcher

Rather unusually today’s vase is stamped “Made in Germany”. The thing that’s peculiar about that is that this style of pottery is nearly always marked “West Germany”, which is where most German art pottery (also known as ‘Fat Lava’) originates from. Obviously there’s a chance that it was still made in the West, although perhaps it dates to just before the country was divided in 1949? Going on the style though, it looks to be bit later than that. It’s a great little piece of pottery, with a slightly better finish than a lot of the art pottery that you see, which can be quite naive. I love the textured green lines that form the pattern that runs around the body of the vase – it’s visually very appealing, and also feels great to hold!
