We have recently discovered the wonders of purchasing West German pots from their country of origin. Via the medium of Ebay and some badly advertised listings, we received these in the post today:
For the life of me, I couldn’t get the pictures right of the label. However, to describe it: it’s a pale gold colour with ‘Scheurich’ written in black in a very curly, Fifties style font. I think the pot itself is from the Fifties, but Aidan is not convinced. I will consult the oracle that is the Pottery and Glass forum…
I think this one may have actually come from a British seller, but it was still pretty cheap. It’s added itself nicely to the 414 collection atop the wooden box in the bedroom:
We also bought this at the weekend for a mere £1.80. Not massively exciting, but worthy of an addition all the same. Not Scheurich, I don’t think, but I don’t recognise the maker’s mark. Again, the oracle will be consulted…
On unwrapping the 275 Scheurich, I realised that it had a very similar shape to a larger piece that I bought Aidan at Christmas. Again, I’m sure that it is a larger version of the same form, but Aidan remains unconvinced. I seem to say that a lot.
See what you think:
Got my eye on a couple more on international Ebay sites, but I couldn’t possibly share just yet – don’t want to damage my chances of a bargain!
