I didn't do any thrifting at all this week, so I thought I'd share a couple of pics of one of my favourite vases. I bought this large, grey vase years ago from an antique store on Locke Street in Hamilton, Ontario. It says W. Germany on the bottom, which I thought was kind of cool. I also liked the battle scenes - of horses, shields and arrows - depicted on the sides. Beyond that, I don't know anything about this vase.
If anybody has any idea of what historical scene (or mythology?) is depicted here, I'd love to hear it! (Update: Ms. history prof, Taby Jean, tells me it's Mesopotamian king, Gilgamesh. She even found this pic that looks like the exact scene. Thanks Taby!)
Do you have a favourite piece in your collection?
