This Scheurich floor vase is a joy, mixing a semi-matte drip glaze similar to early 20th century work on the top and a definitive dark brown drip over a volcanic metallic copper glaze on the body. The form is not uncommon in smaller sizes and can be found moderately easily in this size with certain glazes. However, this size with this glaze is at the very least uncommon, and the glaze turned out quite well, which doesn't always happen with the metallic glazes. Shape number is 481 with a date circa 1974.
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.Bay, Carstens, Ceramano, and Others Dümler & Breiden, ES Keramik, Others Gramann (Töpferei Römhild), Others Ilkra, Jasba, Jopeko, Karlsruhe, Marzi & Remy, and Others Otto Keramik Ruscha, Sawa, Scheurich and Others Schlossburg, Silberdistel, Steuler, and Others
