Wallpocket Form 60
Description: This mid century German pottery wallpocket was made by Jasba, probably in the late 1950s. At first look, the decor appears to be an uncommon variation on the Jaspatina glaze, but that's not quite accurate. The primary glaze is cream or beige with the red glaze evidently sponged on to create a mottled effect that allows some of the underglaze to show through, and this mottled area is outlined in gold. The patterning of the decoration looks like Jaspatina, but the gold decoration is airbrushed, not fired like the gold in Jaspatina.
Most gold-rimmed items from this era are airbrushed since it's a much easier method. This is probably a special line, possibly made under contract for a particular outlet, designed to be a lower cost version of their own line.
Still, this cream version and the mint version seem to be at least uncommon, possibly rare. We were lucky enough to encounter a long-time collector who had accumulated a nice selection.

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.
Not just the usual suspects.
(Cats and batteries not included.)
