Grootenburg - Dresler, uncommon color
Paul Dresler,
                      Grootenburg Studio, German studio pottery,
                      uncommon gray glaze  Description: This small German vase has only a faint mark, but design, bottom, and clay all indicate that it's a Paul Dresler design from Grootenburg studio shortly before or shortly after WWII.  Most of Dresler's work has a matte glaze, and the best known is the red/green copper patina color.  So this vase is uncommon with a somewhat glossy glaze and the gray tones. The vase is handmade and hand decorated, as usual with the Grootenburg work.  The lines in the glaze are melt fissures, which are sometimes a failed glaze, but Dresler and some others created them as an aesthetic addition to the work, bringing to mind in some ways the Japanese kintsugi approach, repairing items with gold to highlight the repairs, celebrating them rather than hiding them. 

Dimensions: Height is about 3".

Condition: excellent with no damage and no repairs.  Of course, all our sales are fully guaranteed.

Price:  $50 plus shipping and insurance.

Shipping:  Based on location since cost now varies greatly even with small objects.

International shipping rates by request.

To buy an item (or more), just e-mail us, or you can call us at 812-467-0191.

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.

Guarantee:  If we make a mistake, you get all your money back, including shipping both ways.  If you simply change your mind, you get your money back not counting what it costs to ship the item back to us.

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.
