MCP vases [sold]

Modern Ceramic PrMCP vasesoducts
Vases # 207, 209, 218 and 222
made in Sydney, Australia c.1950s

MCP started production in the 1940s, in Redfern, Sydney. The simple geometric forms of these vases have a very modernist styling and each has a highly textured exterior finish which contrasts with the smooth internal glaze. The two-toned aesthetic meant each vase could be made in a wide range of iterations- albeit along the 50s spectrum of baby blue, pale pink and pale yellow.

When these vases are on display on the shelves, it’s easy to choose one to put flowers in – and the rest of the time the group makes a fantastic art piece.

For sale: $AUD150

    • thanks, i think the MCP vases are beautiful too. i haven’t seen anything like them since i collected them, one by one, over be last few years. i keep looking out for more, but so far, no luck.

    • hi jennifer- nice to hear from you. i agree with you – the vases have the 50s aesthetic of two-tone contrasting colours, with the lovely simple modernist forms. i love the group together, with a monotone backdrop.
