Kaj Franck's amazing mushroom design on a Finel enamel bowl.
I have been lusting after one of these for the longest time. Next to impossible to find in these climes, I have been close on more than one occasion to ordering one on Etsy and have it shipped over from the US. But with a going rate of 75 usd and factoring in the shipping costs, it never quite seemed the right time to spend more than 100 usd on a bowl.
Lucky I resisted temptation this long (for once) ! Because I eventually came across this beautiful specimen on ebay Belgium, and NOBODY was interested. Unbelievable, right ?! Mine for 26 eur. And since the seller was local, I didn't even have to cough up any shipping costs. Yay !
A while back, I also found this Scheurich vase (with Inca decor) for a whooping 3 eur. I love the colour. And from what I've noticed, the green glazes are pretty rare in West German pottery. So this a pretty lucky find as well.
Together with the Strehla planter, I now got a little green collection going in the kitchen. Yay, one more collection!
Putting it all together, you get something like this.
And vignette with cat. Of course.
