A PIECE of pottery, stamped West Germany on the bottom. I don't know much about this stuff, but do like it. The glaze is brilliant. So orange, so glossy. I splurged and paid $15 at a Salvos for this - much more than I'd usually spend at an op shop on a single piece.

  1. It looks fab with your other pieces...and re the price...it would cost 60-100 in a specialty midcentury shop so you got a bargain!

  5. We collect West German pots, we started about 7 years ago, and don't buy many these days. This is the shiney type of glaze, we have some that are really quite grotesque and sort of lavar like. Careful though, they are addictive!

  6. It is definitely a bargain. I consulted my Carter's Everything Vintage Guide for 2007 and although I could not find one exactly like yours, the retail prices list for German ones ranged from $20-$250. Is there anything on the bottom besides West Germany?
