Cat tells me this blue and white pottery is called Delftware or Delft pottery, also known as Delft Blue. In Dutch it’s Delfts blauw.
Whatever it is it’s beautiful! I want one of these! This is work of art! It would great anywhere, I would have it under locked glass. I think everyone would like one of these classics.
Just a great photo! Photographer unknown, found it somewhere on the internet.

То ли кабриолет, то ли ландо. Красивая жизнь советских колхозников.
Experimental KMZ K-750 CX
Either a convertible, or a landau for the beautiful life of Soviet collective farmers.
KMZ frame, wheels, stubbie front end, yet the cylinder heads and rocker covers look Ural, though I can’t spot the usual 3 ribs. and it looks like it has twin exhausts on the LHS. Could this be another mystery machine? Prototype (Agricultural?)
*ландо (landau) – a horse-drawn wheeled enclosed carriage with a removable front cover and a back cover that can be raised and lowered. Landau, a German city where such carriages were first made. From Germanic element; land (territory), can also mean a baby pram, stroller, and (by extension) a style of automobile based around the design of landau carriages.

KMZ K-750 Moto technical assistance and Nikita Khruschev. 1959
The K-750 motorcycle was designed to provide technical assistance to mechanics and collective farms, as well as for foremen of tractor brigades. It differed from serial produced motorcycle models in a special body where equipment and tools are located.
This is a 7 inch glass fruit bowl, speckled reds, blues, greens and yellows, purples even. Whilst its adequacy is very questionable and not exactly legal, but absolutely spectacular when lit. A rare find these days if any still exist. i wish this photo was in colour… B&W just doesn’t do it justice. Imagine rolling into a rally with this gem on high beam.
I came accross this need horn, thanks to Mark Guest who sent me regular a link for cool stuff.
