This delicious work of 1970s Fat Lava era ceramic is by Scheurich Keramik.
The base gloss glaze is a deep black-coffee brown and is visible towards the bottom of the vases as well as at the rim and the interior of the vase. Overlaid on the chocolate brown glaze, is the rich and sumptuous foam lava glaze, in the colours of cappuccino foam.
This piece makes an elegant addition to any lava or drip glaze collection and would suit a room with Vintage, Mid Century or Modernist theme inspired decor.
A BIT OF HISTORY
Scheurich was founded in 1923 and started off selling china, porcelain and glass wholesale. It wasn't until the 1950's that Scheurich started to produce ceramics. In the 1960s the Fat Lava era begins with the thick textured drip glazes and bubbling crater effect glazes giving the fat lava effect. Until the 80's Scheurich was the largest West Germany Ceramic Manufacturer. Scheurich is also known for its sought after large floor vases.
The embossed 5 digits on the bottoms of the vases indicate the shape and size. This piece, for example, the digits are: 414-16 the '414' stands for the shape while the '16' indicates that the vase is 16 cm tall. The more recent pottery produced has a three-circle marking embossed on the bottoms of the pieces. Scheurich still produces ceramics today.
Excellent, no chips, cracks or crazing as might be expected for a piece of this age; there is light use wear that is commensurate with the age of the piece - please see photos as part of the condition report.
