Bay Keramik: Some New, Some Old

It’s safe to say that the German Road Trip: Part Two was a massive success! We’ve arrived home with over 140 pieces of pottery, several retro lamp shades, a few 80s metal clocks, plant pots, some pieces of glass and two version of J.H. Lynch’s ‘Tina’ print. Phew! Once again, Tina (the KA) did not…

Scheurich Pot and Planter

More attempts to take slightly better photos of pots: This is what I think of as being as ‘Aidan’ style photo – put it on a jaunty angle and see what happens! Love the glazes on these. They’re extremely bright and look fantastic with our other red and orange pots in the bedroom. We’re off…

Scheurich 414: New Glazes

Since coming back from Germany a couple of weeks ago, I’ve been fairly busy sorting out the pots we bought, selling them on to Wowie Zowie (as previously mentioned) and some to Planet Vintage Girl. If you’ve been reading my previous posts about West German Pottery, you’ll have seen that I’m amassing a collection of…

Glossop’s Loss is Chorlton’s Gain…

The lovely couple at Wowie Zowie in Chorlton came round last evening to have a look at the pots, and ended up buying about half of them. So we have a little bit more room in the living room and the people of Chorlton can now get stuck into decorating their houses 70s style with…

Lovely Lava, Gorgeous Glazes, Perfect Pots…

Here are some of the photos from the collection we brought back. We’ve taken out ones that we want to keep, now we just have to find out how to sell the others. Probably not going to be an easy task! Some we’re keeping:    Those are some of my favourites; there’s plenty more to…

Car Boot Sale Finds

Unfortunately, it has decided to bucket it down with rain today. We had planned to do a car boot sale this morning; car was packed and ready to go. However, waking up to rain at 6am put paid to that idea and the usual Sunday morning lounging was resumed! I do have some bits and…

Aidan’s Birthday Presents

Confession time: Aidan’s birthday was in February…  Admittedly, he was given these a couple of weeks after the event, but still that is fairly slack of me to only just be posting them up now.  As they were his presents, Aidan has taken the pictures himself: The Scheurich one is my favourite of the two….

New Scheurich 414

I’ve been exceedingly slack on the blogging front recently. Usual excuse: work. I’m not going to comment any further as it occupies too much of my mind as it is.  On a more interesting front, I recently received this: Shocking picture: I do apologise!! Another Ebay purchase; I was a little disappointed when it arrived…

Who Says Brown is Boring? Ask Scheurich…

Ok, as individual pots – these are probably not the best.  But as a group… Clockwise from bottom left: Scheurich, unknown form (can’t read the bottom!); 549-21; 517-45; 549-21; and last but never least… 414-16.  I don’t know what the glaze is called. Had a quick P&G forum trawl, but nothing so far. Will update when…

Scheurich Galore! (Well, nearly…)

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…
