I love the vibrant mottled blue glaze of this pottery vase. The bottom has an impressed shield mark by Waechtersbach pottery company. Thank you art.pottery and vetraio for all your help.

    How big is it?
  4. sarahoff sarahoff, 2 years ago

    I'm going to guess its about 11 to 12 inches tall. I'll search through the garage tomorrow for a tape measure:)

    Out in left field here, when I was looking for an image of old blue enamelware to compare this to, I stumbled upon these Austrian, Polish milk carriers.

    The shape & colours are very similar, it made me wonder if it's design was inspired by these.

    Wow thank you walk softly, I appreciate the time you've spent helping out:) I can see exactly what your saying.

    You're very welcome sara, I think that I should change my name to Curious George. I tend to go looking online whenever something piques my interest.
    I sure didn't expect to find that & didn't know if I should even mention it!

    Yup you could call me curious Georgette and would be perfectly happy if I could get paid to research items all day:)
  12. walksoftly walksoftly, 2 years ago
    Getting paid for being curious would be nice. :-)
  13. sarahoff sarahoff, 2 years ago
    It sure would:)

    West German. Check "Wächtersbach". 50s to 70s?
  16. sarahoff sarahoff, 2 years ago
    Thank you for your help art.pottery!

    Have you come across this site yet?

    It's a real 'goody' on the German pottery topic.

    Thank Vetraio, It was one of the marks that confused me because my shield is reversed.
  19. vetraio50 vetraio50, 2 years ago
    I did have a similar case, actually. For a long time I thought it was Danish. It still troubles me. The "beehive"!

    Might be Augarten too!
    By the way I used it once and it leaked over my Swedish table.
    I donated it to a charity shop.
    Beware!

    I have a question what does the numbers mean? Thanks :)
  21. vetraio50 vetraio50, 2 years ago
    They can be form numbers and/or size numbers .... usually height in centimetres.
  22. sarahoff sarahoff, 2 years ago
    Thanks for the warning vetraio, no watering the beehive:)
  23. PolargirlVintage, 2 years ago
