An unexpected benefit of living where we do is that there is a small flea market just down the street from our apartment every Saturday. There are very few professional sellers there, just normal people clearing out their basements and garages. Prices are always reasonable, so very few things, barring the earth opening up and swallowing me whole, prevent me from going. There’s also no competition at all for things like huge mint-green-and-chocolate-brown vases, but their loss, right? Right?
West-German pottery is often not marked with a manufacturer name, but as you can see, this one was produced by Jasba. The second set of numbers indicates the height of the piece (35 cm.) Nobody fought me for this vintage wall plate either, but if I like one thing, it’s brown and yellow cranes over our kitchen door:
This one is completely unmarked. Ruscha and Kiechle produced similar designs, as did various other manufacturers. If I had to guess when it was made, I would tentatively say the 1970s. Anyone know? It was mine for 1 EUR, in any case.
