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.

Schmider Tigris cat vase

Dating from the 1950s and 1960s, these striking black and yellow pots are easy to spot. The shiny glaze and the painted wavy yellow lines on the black background make them unmissable.

The range is Tigris, designed by Anneliese Beckh for West German pottery manufacturer, Schmider.

The shapes and colour combinations are so typical of the 1950s, remember Elegance by Hornsea Pottery, England from the same era: Hornsea elegance

I like the stylish, simplified shape of the cat vase.

  1. I have a version numbered 4130 which has slightly different less squiggly stripes. Was each one hand decorated? It is a lovely night-prowler of a cat.
