A Saturday doesn’t get any better than this: breakfast in bed and enough sunshine to hit the flea market. The Jasba floor vase gods seem to be on my side at the moment, cause look what I dragged home:
Jasba was founded in 1926 in Baumbach and still exists today, although they stopped producing decorative vases in the mid-70s.
The glaze is difficult to photograph well but is actually a dark navy blue in combination with a mustardy yellow, the inside of the vase has an almost marble-patterned glaze, and the little swirls that remind me of Celtic designs are textured, bulbous protrusions. I think this piece is a nice example of how tactile many of the ceramics creations of the period between the 60s and 70s were, not to mention how substantial. I have a few more flea market goodies stored up for you which I will photograph and blog about tomorrow, including some Berlin flea market finds, so stay tuned.
