Ilkra  W. German Pottery Panorama Statue of Liberty Vase
Ilkra "Panorama" Vase Shape 1033

Ilkra Panorama vase with
                    Statue of Liberty, West German Pottery  Description: This unusual vase was made by Ilkra in 1963 and designed by K.Schwebsch as part of the "Panorama" series (believed to include 5 vases, each representing a continent).  It features a wide variety of motifs that capture various aspects of US life and history. I'm not sure if any of the motifs are aimed at the rest of North America.  The primary image is the Statue of Liberty, but there are also musicians, baseball players, cowboys and cows, arrows, a teepee, oil rigs, someone basking beneath a palm tree and several other images.  Shape number is 1033.  This is a rather hard item to find as well as neat.  (Thanks to Volker Hornbostel and Ralf Schumann for information on this one....a tricky attribution.)

Dimensions: Height is about 10".

Condition: is very good.  However, there is a tiny glaze flak
e on the rim and one under the vase. Neither is significant and could be easily taken care of if you feel the need.  Of course, all our sales are fully guaranteed.

Price:  $150 plus shipping and insurance.

Shipping:  will vary based on location.  E-mail us for a quote. (We prefer to use US Priority Mail but will use other services based on
customer request.)

International shipping rates by request.

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.
