Fat lava vase [sold]

Bay, West Germany vaseWest Germany vase,
made in 1960s

Here we have another ‘Fat Lava’ vase- made in West Germany in the 60s. The base of the vase is clearly marked W. Germany, but the markers mark is obscured. I think it’s Bay [short for Bay Keramik] – with its identifying vase number, but it’s illegible.

The outer glaze on the vase is a matt charcoal, with matt white: whereas the orange spirals have a shiny glaze. The interior of the vase is also a contrasting shiny sienna colour.

The vase isn’t very large- see the Batmobile for a scale comparison- but it’s in great vintage condition. It would make a good entry level piece in a Fat Lava collection.

The vase is for sale: $AUD40

The 60s kitchen

Jean kitchen doll furniture [60s]Jean doll kitchen furniture made in West Germany 1960s A fantabulous set of kitchen furniture showcasing the aesthetics and colours of the 60s made by Jean, in what was West Germany. In the kitchen is Moishe- a monster from Maurice Sendak’s book ‘Where the Wild Things Are’- published in 1963. Although Moishe’s 60s dating is a good segue- I choose him for his brown and yellow colourings. He was MADE for this kitchen! And he’s clearly enjoying it. Jean made dolls furniture from the 1950s until the late 1980s; as the decades passed so the furniture was updated to reflect the stylistic trends of the day. This furniture is 1/16th scale to fit many of the doll houses produced in the 50s and 60s. All the doors and drawers open out- giving hours of fun- or hours of ironic posturing with a figurine of your choice. The kitchen furniture set is for sale: $AUD35 [Moishe optional] Buy Now
