THE ITEM
A simply formed piece is humble in shape but bearing the easily recognisable Fabiola glaze by Scheurich of dark molasses brown with fiery crimson red band.

The vibrant red glaze streaks across the center, diffusing into a paler band of walnut brown. The interior of the vase is finished with a continuation of the dark molasses glaze.

A elegantly glazed piece with an adorable shape to grace a 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 1960's 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.
