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.

Baca vase by Nils Thorsson for Royal Copenhagen

Is it going a bit too far to describe a vase as sheer joy?

I don't think so. Not when the vase is as good looking as this.

This perfectly formed bottle vase is the work of Nils Thorsson. Made by Royal Copenhagen, Denmark in the 1960s, it's part of the Baca Fajance series.

The intricate yellow trails of linework stand out against the deep brown background and the whole pot has a lovely 'orange peel' textured surface.

The vase has been in the collection for several years now. I was lucky enough to find the vase in the early days and managed to pick it up without paying too much. And I think I can honestly say it's been a real pleasure to have this vase on display.
