This is a Beautiful Scheurich ‘Wien’ (Vienna) vase, designed by A. Seide, made in W.Germany circa early 1970’s.
A Fantastic form, the ‘Wein’ series is bulb like, with its rounded bulbous base, and triple ribbed neck, reminiscent of ‘Bibendum ‘ Michelin Man’.
A Striking decor, with the matte pumice like black and yellow glazes mottled and dripping down to a glossy vibrant red glaze. Flamelike with a nod to Pop Art and Space Age styles and very in keeping with the ‘Fat Lava’ designs of the era.
A Colourful statement piece, sculptural in its own right, and a perfect bright retro encapsulation of the era!
Great as an addition to any collection of Fat Lava / West German pottery, and would be a superb vase to brighten up any retro, vintage, 60’s, 70’s, pop art, space age or contemporary styled interior.
In Excellent Condition, no marks, chips or scratches.
Measures 23 x 15 x 15cm / 9 x 6 x 6in.
Moulded mark to the base 269 – 22 W.GERMANY
