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.

West German Pottery Spotted (48) – UK National Space Centre

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.
