This picture (from the Fat Lava Collectors Club) shows two Scheurich vases, 428-48 and 428-65. That's right, the blue one is 65 centimeters, about 25 1/2" tall. It's the largest currently known in the series. The shape was designed by A. Seide in 1971 as part of his Wien/Vienna series. At what point does a vase require its own zip code?



The photo is imitating a Ceramano ad from 1959.
