Vintage Green and Grey West German Scheurich Keramik Vase 636-16
Pickup currently unavailable
By the early 1960s the West German factories started to experiment heavily with the decorative effects of glazes. This experimentation was mainly with the use of mostly drip glazes, with one glaze running over another, usually in a contrasting colour or a different thickness, resulting in a lava-like effect. However it was the 1970s that saw a true expression in experimentation and innovation with pots of all types, from floor vases to miniature bowls, made in bizarre shapes and covered in all kinds of dazzling colours and patterns.
This particular pot was designed by Heinz Siery for Scheurich, and features a beautiful green/blue glaze paired with gun metal grey in differing glaze textures.
Although they started late, Scheurich produced more items from the 1960s through to the 1980s than any of the other art pottery companies. As usual, high production numbers meant a wide range of quality and quality control, but some items, especially their glazes were and still are major achievements.
The tall, thin, oval shape is very unusual and is the perfect piece to add to any collection or a great way for you to start.
In general good condition with wear commensurate with age including the remnants of an old sticker. Measures approximately 15cm tall, 26cm wide and 7.5cm deep.
