Description, Buying, and Such Things

Description: The Poesie series by Marzi & Remy was very labor intensive, so it's not something you find easily. Background and decoration make it look a lot like a klinker vase but I don't think it's from that clay. The vase is signed by M. L. Spangenburg, one of the better known decorators at Marzi & Remy and possibly a designer of some decorations.

This series tended to feature Spanish scenes in keeping the the 1950s desire to think of more exotic, romantic, or peaceful scenes than the still remaining ruins and memories of WWII. Shape is number 1061.

Height is about 12".

Condition: is excellent with no damage and no repairs, although there is a weird glaze issue with a couple of spots of glossy brown that may have been a glaze accident in the kiln during the final firing.

Price: is $250 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.
