Vintage Pinched Pottery Vase

Vintage pottery vases are a beautiful thing. It's also something - when I see them and they fit my parameters for keeping a vase - that I want for my own collection.

I've sold many vintage vases over the years in my shop and still do from time to time, but there are random vases - pottery vases - I come across while thrifting that need to be a part of my collection.

I found one today. 

My vintage vase collection is mostly in blues and greens, so this one is unusual in its color (for me) and has a pattern on it.

But the best part is it's a pinched vase. So, two sides of it were pinched and fired that way. How unique!

This little guy is only about 6 inches tall. There aren't any markings on the bottom, unfortunately. But that's okay. I've set him on my side table in the family room and it fits in perfectly.

This vase has been in my local thrift store for weeks. And for those weeks, I'd walk by and look at it thinking I should buy it - "Look, it's still here that means I should get it." (And then I shake my head and say to myself, "I don't need another vase!")

Today, I broke down and bought it. For $2.99, it was worth it. It could be handmade by a novice, but I kind of don't think it is. Someone knew what they were doing when making this sweet vase.

Sometimes, it's the little things that are the big things.
