IMG_9729This is a Great Set of 4 Dumler & Breiden Keramik pieces, West Germany circa 1960’s.

Beautiful Mid Century style design from this renowned West German pottery of high quality wares and ‘Fat Lava’ pieces. The decor is influenced by abstract Cubist patterns and with the terracotta glaze has a natural classic look, coupled with the simple curved forms.

The two small bud vases are elegantly curved, one slender with a flared rim, the other short and bulbous. The two shallow bowls / dishes have gently sloping sides, one has a pointed end, suggesting a handle.

A Stunning little collection, the forms complement each other beautifully and the simple zig zag painted motifs in white, blue and yellow add a nice retro touch.

Would be Great as part of a collection of West German / Fat Lava / European Art Pottery, and would make a fantastic addition to any retro, vintage, 50’s, 60’s, mid century, modernist, minimal or contemporary interior.
