50s kitsch

50s kitsch vasesKitsch vases
c.1950s

These vases are ‘extreme’ kitsch. Nothing says ‘I am here to hold your flowers’ like a horse, flamingo or garishly coloured swallow. It’s entirely possible I am the only person in the world who likes them. Certainly their manufacturer was reticent to put their name to the vases…they are all unmarked.

The vases look even better when bright, garish flowers are added…the weird juxtaposition of a rearing horse holding flower stems in its front legs is hilarious. That’s why I like kitsch…it’s often –unwittingly- very funny.
