I recently discovered these mid-century West German vases and I am hooked. The colors are so bright and bold, the designs so modern — I feel like it’s something so rarely see in pottery your grandmother could have owned.
The West German ceramics you’ll find today on eBay and Etsy are mainly vases, but occasionally you’ll find something cool, like an uber-modern pitcher or a teapot.
On my own blog, I talk frequently about how important it is to know the keywords you’re looking for when performing a search for objects you desire. Looking for West German ceramics is no exception. Here are a few keywords to help you find great pieces of West German pottery:
- Keramik (see eBay results here)
- Fat Lava (see eBay results here)
- Jopeko (see eBay results here)
- 60s German ceramic (see eBay results here)
… and of course to that you can always add keywords like vase, pitcher, teapot, or dish.
