Comments Off on West German Pottery Spotted (49) – Anki Overdrive TV Advert
What appears to be a West German vase (perhaps by Bay Keramik or Scheurich) appears briefly in the TV advert for the car racing game Anki Overdrive.
Shown below surrounded by racing car action!
You can see the video here.
Thank you very much to our friends and fellow West German pottery collectors for sending in this suggestion.

The National Space Centre in Nottingham features a display on the 1969 moon landing. It allows you to ‘re-live’ the event in a 1960’s living room. The room features a Krösselbach Fayence bowl – see below.
It also has a rather nice fat lava ceramic tile coffee table – I’ve never been sure where these are made, maybe France or Italy.

OK, the title of this post is maybe misleading as it doesn’t actually contian West German pottery, but this book by Ruth Quartermaine, published in 1971, does feature some stylish retro Italian ceramics.

Our two tiny tots have grown up with West German pottery in the house, garden and garage. It is a regular occurrence to spot our eldest playing with pots, usually making imaginary cups of tea or pretending to mix cakes ingredients in then. It is therefore only natural that they decided they wanted to paint them.
