MC-58     Carstens Floor Vase shape E-2

  Description: This West German pottery floor vase was made by Carstens and is from the "Europa" series designed by Heinz Siery in the early to mid 1960s. It features a geometric pattern and an aquamarine over brown glaze. It's an excellent example of using the underglaze to add a sense of depth, texture, and variety to the top glaze, which is itself both pleasing and unusual.  The design has a definite Op-Art feel.

Dimensions: Height is about 18".

To buy an item (or more), just e-mail us, or you can call us at 812-467-0191. It works best if  you include the "item" code to let us know which item or items you're interested in. The code is at the beginning of each listing and is usually two letters followed by a number.

We'll confirm that the item is still available, make sure we agree on the total, and answer any questions you wish to throw our way. Checks or money orders should be made "Forrest OR Virginia Poston". We also take Paypal (including credit card payments).

We try to ship in one or two days after payment arrives, and we're generous with the bubblewrap and styrofoam peanuts.

 If there's something you'd like us to find for you, let us know. We're just itching to please you, or maybe that was poison ivy we got into.

Remember that all proceeds go to support good causes: my spouse, our cats (see the "staff" here), our creditors, my auction addiction, and the plumbing project that never ends.

Payment terms:  We try not to be overly picky about the details.  If we can put it in the bank and pay some bills without any undo fuss, then we'll probably take it.  We're quite happy to take checks and money orders, and we're signed up with Paypal, which is the easiest route if you want to pay by credit card.  If you have some other method in mind, get in touch, and we'll see what we can work out.  Monopoly money, anything you may have printed in the basement, and chickens are right out.
