This is one of the iconic shapes from ES Keramik, found with the shape number 683 or 883 depending on the time the jug was made. (ES changed their numbering system in the 1960s.) Based on the design, this version is probably from the late 1950s or no later than the very early 60s. The design is fully hand applied, a lot of very good work. The form is clean and sharp, suggesting it was made while the mold was still fairly new. It's simply a fine, uncommon example of a W. German pottery classic.

Height is about 9".

Price: $175 plus shipping and insurance.

Shipping will depend on location. Contact us for a quote.

Buying, Paying, and Such Things

You may notice that we don't have a checkout where you can just click for your goodies without so much as saying hello. Well, we want people to say hello, ask questions, even hope for a better deal. Long ago, I told stories for 7 hours (free refills on coffee), so "impersonal" just isn't my style. Click on one of those "E-mail" buttons. I can't handle as much coffee as I used to, so the stories will be fewer.

These days, Paypal is about the easiest payment method around, but we 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. And if you run into any questions along the way, there should be an e-mail link on every page, so just click and ask.

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.
