I was quite surprised when I picked up this vintage boat vase and saw the Drostdy stamp underneath – it really doesn’t look like a piece of Drostdy to me? That doesn’t mean that I don’t love it, it’s just a bit more refined than most of the Drostdy pieces you see, and the yellow glaze is that much softer. Not that it’s that delicate – it’s still a relatively chunky piece of pottery, just not as chunky as Drostdy tends to be! But at the end of the day I suppose none of that matters. It’s a lovely piece of retro South African pottery in mint condition – and that’s what matters most!

Dimensions: 14cm tall x 28.5cm long x 10cm wide

Price: R130
