A little Tuesday vignette action for ya. Before I ever started following interior design blogs I just used to call this kind of thing “trying to arrange stuff in a pretty way,” but what did I know? Seriously.
My floor vases get a lot of love on the blog, but sometimes it’s the little things that make the most impact. Scheurich’s 414-16 shape (above) must have tapped into people’s collect-them-all mindset, because it was produced throughout much of the 1960s and into the 70s in over 100 different glazes (via Kevin Graham.)
The 414-16 needs a few buddies of its kind to really shine, but the good news is that they regularly pop up in thrift stores, at fleamarkets, and on ebay. This shape is a perfect gateway drug for any potential West-German pottery collector: requires little space, easy to tuck away in a cupboard should you tire of it, and holds a decent spray of flowers. Let’s hunt some down before all the cool kids catch on!
