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.

Briglin Pottery dog

Sorry. It's been quite a while since I did a blogpost so here's a cute little dog to look at while I dig out some more Potshots goodies.

The dog is by Briglin Pottery, remember this: Briglin Pottery

I like the texture of the carved hair and the way that those hollow eyes give him (or her) a comical blank expression.

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.
