Chance Psychedelic Vase
« on: February 01, 2013, 11:08:06 AM »
Just delivered a Chance Psychedelic Handkerchief Vase - smaller size in orange - love it - I have a few other Handkerchief vases but this is my first psychedelic one - bit of mildew to inner surface not mentioned but it was cheap enough and looks great with my retro pieces.

These patterns are always good buys as they are sought after. They both look to be the 4-in. variety - anything else is most unusual!

The funny thing here is that the orange one is scarcer than the black, although the black appears to be more collectable. The charts I produced for Chance Expressions (p.111) show that I observed 19 orange as opposed to 30 black vases sold on eBay over a 15-month period, yet the black vases always fetch a higher price. Not only that, the Escher pattern in any colour is actually scarcer than Psychedelic - "there's nowt as queer as folks"  ;D

The black is far more attractive than the orange, David. And the Esher pattern is... boring.
A scarce ugly thing is still just an ugly thing.  ;)

On a black background, the orange would look more impressive. Horses for courses. But don't diss the Escher!

But if you want to see something scarce and ugly, take a look at this:

As you can see, I already had!
I do agree - the orange would look better on a black background - and even better on a purple ground.

funny, I always thought  'Esher'  was in Surrey ;)         I did once collect the Handkerchief vases, but don't remember ever finding a Psychedelic example - although black can be seen as a bit depressing I guess, and orange as more cheerful.        Perhaps it might help if you had some of the mushrooms whilst viewing ;D

Must admit I really can't see any purpose to the Diseased Milk Bottle design, and to me it does seem to lack anything that might appeal to the artistic senses - but guess art is all things to all men/wimmin  -  look how some people rave over Tracy's unmade bed or Jackson's dribbles.
Escher was in a different league to these Handkerchiefs  -  his stuff really was stunning.

Anyway, good piece of retro Adam, especially if not expensive  -  and cheerful colours. :)

Jackson's "dribbles", when analysed mathematically via computer programmes turn out to be fractals, Paul.
They are not random dribbles, they are fabulous and sophisticated; they are "high" art.
Tracy Emin's bed is an exposure of the deepest and most shameful part of her soul - angst. It took courage to display that.
It is also, (in my not so humble opinion), "high" art. I think she's great and lovely.

Damian Hirst is just a p*ss artist though.  ;D
