There are many good bud vases out there, and I can't resist snatching them up when I find them. I am not sure when this one was made or who made it, but it definitely has a mid-century brutalist feel. It's quite different from every view--mostly blue from one side, brown and grey speckled from another, with the clay body showing through. Constant all the way around is a black design of triangles with lines through the centers, alternating in direction. A really nice mix of rustic and refined, this is just a great little vase.
4 1/2" tall x 3 1/2" diameter, with an opening about 7/8" across. Great condition, and signed on the bottom, but unreadable.
