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.

A tasty bit of Danish Blue.

Here's the last blog-post for now on Einar Johansen Soholm vases. And it's a good one to end with.
This weighty, rounded vase is quite a bit larger than the vases shown in the two earlier blog-posts. It still has the same distinctive matt black collar at the neck but rather than a pattern of tiny triangles, there's a delicate feather or leaf motif that runs round the body. The surface glaze is a very high gloss in deep blue with an iridescent feel about it, which gives the vase a hard almost metallic look.
Made by Soholm, Denmark, the vase is part of Einar Johansen's Blue Series and was first produced about 1964. And doesn't it look good all these years later?
