I’m very pleased with my latest Scheurich 414. So much so, that I wanted to take some pictures showing off all 28 versions of the pot I now have:
In the grand scheme of things, it’s not really that many. Scheurich were one of the most prolific of the West German Pottery manufacturers, creating hundreds of different glazes. If I can get anywhere near fifty, I’ll be happy!
A very nice person we’ve met through Ebay has also promised to send me another 414 as a freebie. There was some kind of mix up with Aidan’s Ebay account, whereby Paypal strangely refunded the buyer’s payment without telling either of them! However, the buyer has sorted it all out and is sending the pot as a kind gesture. Very kind gesture in my eyes! When it arrives, naturally it will be posted up on here.
Aidan has headed off tonight for the latest trip to Germany. I’m unbelievably jealous that I’m not going… less said the better, really! He’ll have an amazing time, I’m sure. Just wish that I was sitting next to him in Wanda (the new Kangoo, you’ve not been formally introduced yet), singing along to Fleetwood Mac and spotting all the familar landmarks on the way down to Dover. Oh well, he needs to go on his own to see if it’s possible. If not, then we can’t really consider the business properly.
It’s dangerous leaving me on my own though. I’ve wrapped up five Ebay parcels; I’ve also just won some Topshop boots! Randomly bidding for stuff is a dangerous habit…
Hump day tomorrow. Can’t wait – bring on Friday!

Oh – the greens! I don’t think I’ve many green vases. And I love the blues. We addicts can justify anything – the ‘context’ argument is always a good one.
Yep, context is the way to go! I always like green and blue vases, but other people seem to be more keen on the bright oranges and reds.
IF WE COME ACROSS ANY SCHEURICH 414 ON OUR TRAVELS WE WILL SAVE THEM FOR YOU…….
IS THE KANGOO A 1.5 DIESEL? ECONOMY IS SUPERB…WE HAVE A MEGANE 70,000 MILES IN 4 1/2 YEARS NEVER GONE WRONG…..GOOD LUCK TO AIDAN HOPE HE FINDS SOME GOOD’UNS!!
Hi Julian, it is a diesel, but I couldn’t tell you what litre it is! I never know these kinds of things. We’ve heard good things since buying it, so we’re quite happy with it. Hopefully it’ll see Aidan around Germany safely. Emma
