Description, Buying, and Such Things

Description: Great turquoise color on a classic form would be enough to make this Bay Keramik 508-30 vase a great piece of art pottery, but it doesn't stop there. The glaze is textured with small clumps, each of which affects the coloring, causing light, near white spots. Then we have a geometric design in applied slip in a contrasting black. It's somehow both simple and complex, and it's definitely beautiful and striking. Not sure of the date, although I lean toward early to mid 1960s based on design and use of the full "West-Germany".

Height is about 12".

Condition is excellent with no chips, no cracks, no damage. Our guarantee is simple. If you don't like it, send it back. All you risk is the return shipping.

Price is $195 plus shipping/insurance. We'll work out the best shipping options with you,including whatever discount we get if using Pirateship.

You may notice that we don't have a checkout where you can just click for your goodies without so much as saying hello. I realize that it's not as quick and convenient, but we want people to say hello, ask questions, even hope for a better deal. We especially want to be able to figure the best shipping we can rather than depending on a program to do that.

Send us an e-mail at specifying the item you're interested in and the ZIP or country for shipping, and I'll get back to you with a total (no handling fees or anything like that).

These days, Paypal is about the easiest payment method around, but we can take Venmo, still take checks, even cash. No Monopoly money, nothing printed up in your basement, no chickens, etc., but otherwise we're fairly flexible. If we can put it in the bank without anyone getting in a tizzy, we'll probably take it.

Please take time to stroll through the site. Sorry we can't offer you a cup of coffee or tea while you're looking, but maybe you can take care of that yourself. Just don't spill it on the keyboard. Please, no spit takes if one of my puns hits the spot. (Of course, I want to hear about it if it happens.)

Hope you'll enjoy our "sing the body eclectic" approach (with apologies to Walt Whitman). As always, proceeds go to support our creditors, my spouse, our cats, my auction addiction, and the plumbing project that never ends.
