Vest Keramiek, Netherlands: Small Purple Fat Lava 'Teapot'
A super cute piece of Dutch fat lava by Vest Keramiek.
It's a vase in the shape of a tea pot, thickly glazed in dripping purple fat lava.
I have a larger version of this vase as well, in a different colour, but I do love this purple one! Originally it will have had a little lid but this has been lost - I don't think it detracts from the piece at all however.
It dates from the 1970s.
It is 9 cm (3.5") high, just a little taller than Otto the troll, who I use to indicate size on many of my photos.
The width is approx. 13 cm (5"), and weight is 222g.
