This vase was made by the German company, Lazarus Straus & Sons, often called Royal Rudolstadt. The US branch was known as the New York and Rudolstadt Pottery Co, and this particular mark indicates that the vase was made at the Rudolstadt Works between 1895 and 1924. (Information comes from Chris Marshall's "Porcelain Marks and More" site.) The company has really never gotten the respect in deserves, and this excellent vase shows that great respect is deserved. It's exquisite in form, subtle coloring, and execution.

Size: Height is about 8".

Price: $75 plus shipping and insurance.

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.
