Description, Buying, and Such Things

Description: Many companies did fish decors during the W. German era, but the work on this Karlsruhe plaque is exceptional, although that's to be expected from Karlsruhe. Most such decoration by Ruscha, Marei, and Keto was on a matte black background, but the background here, as well as the rest of the glaze is moderate to high gloss. The company mark is faint and no visible design number.

Diameter is about 12 1/2".

Condition: is excellent with no damage and no repairs.

Price: is $110 plus shipping/insurance

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 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, kmstill 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.
