Based on the style, the base, and what clay is visible, this vase is attributed to Heyne Töpferei (studio). You will commonly see items like this attributed to Hoy, but that was an error in early research. Unfortunately, those early errors remain all over the internet, as hard to get rid of as weeds. (Even the Heyne attribution is just "best guess", more like Heyne work than any other but not confirmed.) It features a dark brown base glaze (over red clay) with a very strong red glaze on top. The mixture of textures is typical of W. German pottery. The vase is handmade, and although the brown glaze covers the bottom, it's a light red clay. Date is circa 1970.

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.
