Pots and Pots

If you’ve not visited it already, you need to get yourself over to Potsandpots.com. Aidan has spent many hours putting this together and the results are – not that I’m biased at all – a fantastic resource for the West German Pottery collector. For each of the major West German Pottery manufacturers, he’s compiled a…

Pottery for Sale

As it’s now the (and I hate saying this) run-up to Christmas, we’re having a big push on Aidan’s Ebay, selling lots of West German Pottery. There are all kinds of pots for sale: As with all of his Ebay listings, Aidan takes a lot of time to ensure that the pictures are truly representative…

Autumnal Pottery

This is one of my favourite times of the year. Once half term is over, it’s the countdown to Christmas, Halloween and Bonfire Night. There’s something about the smell in the air at this time of year: crisp, leafy, smoky… it reminds me of walking to school as a teenager, wrapped up in my thick…

West German Pottery – The Latest Favourites

By the time you read this, we will be in Deutschland, hopefully on our way to collecting a car full of retro goodies! Whilst you (eagerly?) await our return, feast your eyes on some of my favourites from the last trip: Fingers crossed we come back with some equally as amazing stuff. ..

West German Pottery: Reds and Blues

In approximately three hours’ time, we will be setting off on, what I think is, our fifth trip to Germany. Yep, just done a quick count-up in my head, and it’s our fifth roadtrip over there! As always, Aidan heads up the planning of the trip and my job is to sort out food for…

Guess What? Yeah… more pottery…

More of the ‘Last of the Last’ – German pots remaining from our last German Roadtrip. Ten Days until the next trip… we’d probably be setting off at about this time as well! The odd thing about that ES pink pot is that the 9 on the base is the wrong way round. Not sure…
