Gramann, Töpferei Römhild
                    Vase with Purple Volcanic Glaze, East German
                    Pottery  Description: This West German pottery vase comes from the Gramann Römhild company circa 1960.  They are best known for variations on this granite-like glaze.  There seem to be two basic versions, the semi-matte version with somewhat larger spotting and a volcanic quality such as this, and then there is a version with a smooth surface that also tends to have finer spotting.  That sounds simple, but they did a lot of neat combinations.

This is a somewhat odd color. The background is black, as usual, but the top glaze is a light lavender that shades to a pinkish tone near the base.  The vase has the incised T over R mark for Töpferei Römhild.  Date is circa 1960.

Dimensions: Height is about 8".

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

Price: SOLD

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.
