West-German Pottery Finds

Last weekend was cold and rainy, so the various Easter fleamarkets going on in our area were a bit of a literal washout. We did manage to find a few cool things, the above wall vase being my husband’s find. He pulled it out of a cardboard box full of things priced at 1 EUR… it’s in perfect condition and has that cavewall-like textured surface and the natural colours that were so popular in the 70s. I think it might be Scheurich but am not at all sure. This colourful jug is a Scheurich piece and simply demanded to be rescued and allowed to glow among its friends in our living room. The darling bud vase on the left has a pristine lemon yellow interior and is probably by Jasba. That white, crackly looking glaze is called “Schrumpflasur” in German-“shrunken” glaze. The vase in the middle is yet another Scheurich in what must have been a very popular colour combination, since I already own its twin. Here’s hoping for better spring weather and fleamarketing soon!
