Jopeko Keramik West German Pottery "tea pot" form with Paris Glaze         SOLD

Jopeko Shape 722 with Paris GlazeDescriptionThis teapot-like form is by Jopeko and features their "Paris" glaze,  a strongly volcanic glaze in unusual shades of gray-brown with beige highlights leaning toward gold, an intriguing entry into the fat lava genre.

The form is suggestive of Oriental gourd vases, but like most West German pottery, this is not a utilitarian piece and never even had a lid (nothing's missing).  The bottom is marked Handarbeit (for hand work, more in glaze application and probably some refining of form post-mold) plus two sets of numbers:  722 16 and 802 16.  The same form is known with only the 722 16 mark.  Why two sets is unclear, but it's known to have happened from time to time on Jopeko pieces.

Dimensions:   Height is about
6 1/2" with a diameter of about 7 7/8" with the handle and about 6" in the direction without the handle. 

Form: 722

Company/Artist:  Jopeko

Decor/Glaze:  Paris (glaze name)

Estimated Date: circa 1970
is excellent with no damage and no repairs.

Price:  SOLD

Shipping: Will vary based on location.  Contact us for a quote.

  Our guarantee is a fairly simple one.  When you get the package, if you don't like the item, send it back.  We'll refund the original price and original shipping charge.  The only part you're risking is the cost to return it.  And if we made an important mistake in the description, we'll cover the return shipping as well.  (Saying something is 12" tall when it's really 10" counts as an "important" mistake.  A spelling error does not.) 

Mostly, we do things this way because we think it's the right thing to do, but we're also fully aware that a happy customer is
more likely to be a repeat customer and tell friends about this great site they found.

Payment: First of all, we like getting paid.  It really does make everything run more smoothly, so we try to be as flexible as we can.  Essentially, if we can put it in the bank without breaking any laws, we'll probably take it.  So checks that won't bounce are fine.  We're only set up to take credit cards through Paypal unless you want to buy through our Etsy site.  (For international sales, Paypal is easiest for us, but we'll listen if you have another preference.) 

We even take cash if it's not from a Monopoly set or freshly printed in your basement.  Sorry, but we don't take chickens.  If you have any questions about payment methods, just get in touch.

  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.

  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.
