This French art pottery is marked Jean Massier & Cie. The company was formed by Jean and Henri, sons of Delphin Massier, but was only in business for about 3 years in the early 20th century. So to go along with this unusual form and coloring, the vase is almost certainly uncommon or rare. The glaze combines a lavender and pine green or teal coloring. It's not a combination I'd think of, but it certainly works here. The mark isn't a clear impression, but there's enough to be sure of the origin.
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.West German Pottery Page One Glass For Sale Art Pottery and Porcelain Paintings, Prints, Etc.
