We spent the tail end of our recent mini vacation visiting my family in Berlin and, how could we not, hit a fleamarket together last Sunday. Fleamarketing (if this is not yet a word, it should be) is much more extensive in a city as large as Berlin, but dealers with inflated ideas of what their items are worth abound sometimes. Unsigned print of random forest scene in damaged frame and some staining on the canvas? “I need at least 50 EUR for it”. You at least need a reality check, buddy. Do I sound bitter? I love it, really. We did find some wonderful things in true fleamarket spirit…
Can you believe that this is my first Fat Lava planter? It’s a Bay Keramik one in great condition, no chips or cracks as is so often the case with heavily bashed about items like flower pots. And yes, the windows need to be cleaned quite urgently.
My mom fell for this flamboyant little piece of completely unmarked pottery:
Any ideas on possible manufacturers? I don’t even know if it’s German, although the thick, partly crusty glaze and colour combinations make me think it is.
