A New Shipment from Europe – part IV

Jasba Grasshopper Green Japanese-Form Vase with Netting Effect (LEO Design)

We’ve just received a shipment of vintage ceramics from Europe, including the large “grasshopper green” vase shown above.  Its inspiration is classic Chinese—based on a humble, utilitarian vessel which might have held water, vinegar or fermented duck eggs. Even the string netting, which once encircled the original, are represented in a stylized fashion.  Please click on the photo above to learn more about this West German piece.

More newly-acquired ceramics tomorrow.
