Hello. We like to collect well-designed vintage pottery (and lots of other stuff) from the 1950s,
'60s and '70s. Here are some pictures and info of a selection of the things we've found.

Royal Copenhagen Nils Thorsson vase. Titchy but tasty.

Pots don't always have to be big to be beautiful. Some of the nicest pots in the Potshot collection are only titchy.

I thought I'd do a couple of posts to show one or two of my favourite small-sized pots.

This vase, for example, stands at a mere 4 and three-quarter inches (12cm) tall but to me, it makes up for its lack of height by being really big on style. This is a Royal Copenhagen vase from the late 1960s or early 1970s. It's from the Bacca (or is it Baca?) range by Nils Thorsson. The abstract decoration is in subtle colours, the shape is perfectly proportioned, the glaze is silky and there's a wonderful surface texture.

A little beauty.
