Otto Keramik definitely did numerous variations on bottle and jug forms, especially jugs, Otto Keramik made this form with and without a handle, as W. German pottery companies often liked to do. The form is simple but well-proportioned. The glaze is complex in very subtle ways, something Otto Gerharz did just as well as he did creating the overtly striking volcanic glazes, some of the best fat lava made. This vase is a bit unusual because the base is concave rather than flat, but such is not unknown with Otto, just unusual. You can also see the remains of the early Otto label, just glue residue.

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.

What's "Gin-For"? Strictly medicinal purposes.
