What's for sale?
This is a medium-sized, hand decorated, West German vase from the 1970s. It was made by the well-known and long-established Scheurich Keramik during the latter part of what has become a very collectable period for West German pottery, the 1950s to 1970s.
It's a high gloss, green glazed vase with white powdered decoration on the neck and white spirals on the body, which echo the snail patterns from their earlier "Jura" collection. The inside is finished in a complementary, high gloss, dark brown.
