It looks like it should have been part of an art deco set.....any ideas?

Post by bluenote on November 15th 2017, 2:23 pm

Strange little piece but I had to have it



. Almost art deco shaping with a psychedelic glaze. Was it a candle stick perhaps? A vase (as it would hold a single stem)? A black magic chalice? Don't think it was an eye rinse but you never know. No marks. Approx 6" high.
Any ideas? Thanks

The glaze looks like Vallauris to me. Sometimes found on German pieces too but I'd expect the clay to be darker. But I could be wrong :D

Yes I can see where you are coming from on the glaze but with no marks its difficult to attribute unless someone has seem one before or can defintively say what it is as its got ne baffled

Unfortunately they went through a phase of just sticking labels on, rather than signing them. Possibly 1970s era
