This is a fantastic 'Apollo 8' vase in green, made to commemorate the first manned spaceflight to the moon, made by the Royal Norfolk Pottery Company, England circa 1968.

A fabulous rare piece the first in a set of four, a simple cylindrical vase with a dark green mottled glossy glaze, on a textured surface representing a lunar landscape!

Perfect for use as a practical vase, as display in its own right, or to add to any collection of pottery or Apollo / space travel / Moon landing related items. So reminiscent of the era.

Would make a great addition to any retro, vintage, mid century, modernist, space age, 1960's, 70's, minimalist or contemporary interior.

Measures 19 x 8 x 8cm / 7.5 x 3.25 x 3.25in.

In great condition, no chips or cracks, some light crazing to the glossy glaze, not noticeable on display.

Moulded mark to the base 'Apollo 8 Made in England'.

I also have an Apollo 11 vase in green for sale http://etsy.me/2i142dx

Lovely shaped lamp base. Will have to get it wired but am having a lampshade made for it as we speak.
