Despite being rather petite, I absolutely adore these retro vases! Seriously, I think they’re the height of style! The taller black and white Balboa pitcher not only has contrasting colours, but also textures, with the white glaze being smooth, and the black (possibly very dark brown?) glaze being super matte and gritty. I just love the angles on this piece! And then you have the more squat jug with it’s very grainy glaze, and beautifully hand drawn swirls – how fabulous is that pattern?!
I know that both of these pieces are quite small, but at the same time they’re two of the most stylish vases I’ve happened upon, and I think that far outweighs their somewhat diminutive size!
Dimensions: Taller black & white Balboa vase – 20.5cm tall x 10cm wide x 4.5cm deep; Shorter vase with swirls – 18cm tall x 8.6cm in diameter
