Hooray for Hollywood!

Hollywood vase #91Hollywood vase
made in Sydney Australia, 1950s

This fantastic vase, made by Hollywood in the 50s- has distinct deco styling but mid-century modernist colouring. Like many Australian vases made in the 50s it has a textured glaze exterior and a smooth glazed interior- a light grey outside and a deep yellow inside.

The light grey exterior is extremely complementary to a contemporary interior- the wall here is painted in Dulux ‘Whisper White’- an off-white colour featured in many homes.

The vase is signed ‘Hollywood V91’ [for vase #91.] Hollywood was a small post-war pottery factory in Sydney with a relatively small output- it’s quite rare to come across Hollywood vases now-a-days. The vase is in great condition and is for sale: $AUD90
