Mystery vase, some new additions and another mystery solved

Ahhh, finally friday, what a glorious day that is! Last weekend was great, thrifting wise, just have a look at these beauties. I found this gorgeous vase standing on a very dusty shelf in one of my local thrifts. I don't know anything about it, it has some initials under it, but I can't make out the letters. If you happen to know anything about it, I'd love to hear from you! I absolutely love the pattern, and the color is a bit hard to capture in a photograph, I don't even know what to call it! It has hints of grey, beige, blue and green, all mixed up in a rather mysterious shade.




Next thing I found is this wonderful Scheurich in the most delicious caramel color with a darker brown inside and trim. It's a whopping 42 cm tall and has a beautiful geometric pattern.



From ceramics to plastic! this large pitcher is from Tupperware, and I'd love to know when it was in production. Anyone? It's all black with a white lid and a black little nob that you press down to release the lid.



I really have a thing for ceramic planters and green plants. With this beige and brown beauty from the 70s, it was love at first sight. Notice how she matches her companion, the german guy!




I've finally solved a mystery concerning the origin of some pottery that I found a while ago, thanks to Pep & Salt over at Retro Scandinavian. It's a great blog, if you haven't visited it yet, head on over! The pieces I found are made by Lannem, a pottery from the south eastern part of Norway, that was founded in 1956. Pep & Salt guessed that my pieces are from their earlier production. I love the delicious olive glaze, the geometric shapes and their heavy, substantial quality. It's always great to have a mystery solved! Wish you all a great weekend:-)

    1. Yes, isn't it great? I'm so hoping someone knows who made it, I'm so curious! Haha, sexy Tupperware- that's a combination of words I thought I'd never see:-) But I have to admit I agree! Have the greatest of weekends, Pippa!

    1. Ja visst er den fin? Signaturen kan nesten ikke leses, men jeg skal poste om det om det er noen som løser mysteriet. Så du er også en lykkelig eier av en stor og flott Scheurich:-) Morsomt å finne slike skatter.

    1. Thank you!! I'd sooo love to find out who made it! I especially love the pattern, reminds me of a late 60s sculpture I once saw. Hope to solve the mystery one day:-)

  4. I love your 'mystery vase' Tove, whatever its pedigree. And I can picture its colour perfectly from your description. All your other finds are terrific and gorgeous - they always are. I myself found a lovely mid-century Italian (vase/jug) a few days ago, which I will 'show-off' soon.

    A tale of woe as far as Danish teak goes though I'm afraid. I'm very sad...I'll fill you in on the details/drama another time...basically we're still on the hunt.

    1. Oh, thank you so much, Kylie! Wow, I'm so looking forward to seeing that gorgeous Italian of yours:-)
      I'm so sorry to hear that things didn't go as you hoped for with that Danish teak, it's no fun at all when stuff like that happens... I hope you'll find a great replacement soon!!
