Here's an example of West German pottey that you won't find often or easily. The "Poesie" design is incised and hand painted, much like the Ruscha "Engobe" series but in a matte glaze rather than with enamel, although the raised dots in the decoration are enamel. Another uncommon feature is that this series is artist signed by a known Marzi & Remy decorator (and maybe designer), M. L. Spangenburg. This series tended to feature Spanish scenes in keeping with the 1950s desire to think of more exotic, romantic, or peaceful scenes than the still remaining ruins and memories of WWII. Shape is 1061 with a height designation of 30cm.

Size: Height is about 12".

Price: $250 plus shipping and insurance.

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

Condition: Condition: excellent with no damage and no repairs. There's an odd glaze variation with the marbled brown, not sure why. All sales are fully guaranteed.

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.
