Vintage Ceramic Wall Plaque

With temperatures in the minus something or other ranges these days, fleamarket season is officially over. As is ebay season it seems; competition for anything remotely interesting in the West-German pottery realm is more steep than even a few months ago. Thankfully some sellers haven’t cottoned on yet that a willingness to ship internationally=higher winning bid, and thus the above wall plaque came into my possession this week for 18 EUR. This is more than I would have aimed to spend at a fleamarket, but reasonable considering the nice condition it’s in and how well it goes with the small pottery display on our kitchen shelves…

Does moving from displaying actual pottery to pictures of pottery on your walls mean you have crossed a certain line? Probably. Anyway, the back of the wall plaque is stamped with the name “Bückeburg Keramik” and the potter’s initials are inscribed as well.

The angled, geometric shapes of the pictured vessels makes me think of 1950s design, but all those bold primary colours point towards the early 60s. If any of you have come across Bückeburg pottery in your thrifting and fleamarket adventures and know anything about the company, please share your knowledge!
