Spring Pottery Display

I don’t think I’ve ever actually posted about the previous pottery display in our ‘Diamond Room’ (as the kids call the dining room); but now the weather seems to be picking up a bit, it seemed like a good time to change the pots around a bit and make a new display. The theme is…

Weekly Sales: West German Pottery

The latest batch will be ending tomorrow night. I say this every time, but there really are some gems amongst this lot. See if you can spot what they are: One of my favourites ending tomorrow night is this unusual Roth pot: Despite what it says in the listing ( I did it…) it is…

Potty Parents

The latest batch of Ebay sales came from my parents. Last year, my dad and sister did their own mini German road trip and came back with a few West German Pots of their own. I bought a couple from them, including a gorgeous Italian dish and an amazing Schaffenacker piece. This week, Aidan was…

Pots and Pots

Time for a bit of self promotion, I think. I don’t do this very often, as he has his own website, but I do like to show off some of Aidan’s pottery every now and then. Tonight he’s uploading some more lovely pots and as he’s spent this entire Easter weekend doing essential D.I.Y. to…

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…

Big Pot…

I went through a period of taking pictures of ‘Big Pot Little Pot’ combinations, but today’s version is just pure and simple: BIG POT. This amazing pot is appearing courtesy of Richard (@dipperdog), a collector of West German Pottery who really knows his stuff, seeking out the very best in in the WGP world. You…

West German Pottery Sale

On the spur of the moment (i.e., we realised just how much stuff we’d brought back from Germany this time and panicked!), we’ve decided to have a West German Pottery sale at our house this Saturday, 27th August. We’ll be throwing open the doors to our tiny terrace from 10 til 5. We live in…

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. ..

A Grey Day – The West German Pottery Way

Despite the title of this post, I’ve actually had two pretty good days, busy but productive. I’m referring to the weather with the title! Rain, drizzle, precipitation… whatever you want to call it; it has rained, rained and rained today. I left early yesterday morning with some gigantic parcels in tow to post before going to…

Green, green, green…

My favourite colour ever! Yet for some reason, many people don’t like it; particularly in their retro pottery. I love it. So this is a Green Feast of West German pottery, just for me: I had many grand plans of what I was going to accomplish this evening. Driving lesson went relatively well. It’s my…

A Little Ray of Sunshine…

Now, I’m writing this in advance, so it might very well not be sunny by the time it’s published. I don’t care. At this moment in time, I’m feeling much happier so it’s all about colours to reflect that mood.   Teacher’s strike aside, I’ve got two devolved INSET days… in Basic English, this means I’ve…

I’m Feeling Blue…

I miss my blog. The computer is completely messed up so I’m writing this with it working in safe mode. Whoever the horrendous idiot is who created the Windows Vista Recovery virus: shame on you. Why release something like that? Until the PC is fixed, we’re not uploading any pictures to it; nor are we…
