Mid Century Helmut Schaffenacker, Germany Pottery Wall Plaque Horses, c1960s

About the Item

Step back in time and infuse your living space with the allure of mid-century modern design with this exquisite vintage wall plaque by the renowned German ceramist, Helmut Schaffenacker. Created in the 1960s, a period when Schaffenacker's artistic vision flourished, this piece embodies the creative spirit and innovative craftsmanship of the era. Known for his unique ceramic designs, Schaffenacker's work is celebrated for its textural depth and expressive forms, capturing the essence of post-war modernist aesthetics. This particular wall plaque, measuring an impactful 10.6 inches wide by 16.93 inches tall, serves as a testament to Schaffenacker's artistic legacy. It features a captivating motif of two horses, rendered in a dynamic and stylized manner that is both evocative and timeless. The horses are brought to life through a rich, glazed finish that enhances the fluidity and movement inherent in the design, making it a striking conversation piece. While this objet d'art boasts the originality and quality of Schaffenacker's work, it also tells a story of its journey through time, with some chipping on one of the horse's faces. We invite potential buyers to refer to the accompanying photographs to appreciate the patina that only decades can bestow. Imagine this piece gracing the wall of a mid-century modern living room, its earthy tones and organic subject matter complementing the clean lines of teak wood furniture and the sleek profiles of iconic pieces such as an Eames lounge chair or a George Nelson clock. The plaque is not only a perfect match for other mid-century decor but also blends seamlessly with contemporary, Scandinavian, and even eclectic styles. Its versatility allows it to become a focal point above a minimalist console or to add depth and historical context to a gallery wall that bridges the past and present. Don't miss the opportunity to own a slice of design history with this Helmut Schaffenacker wall plaque. It's not just a decorative item?it's a piece of art that carries the soul of mid-century modern design and the mastery of a celebrated ceramist.
