Pitcher w/Drip Glaze and Gold Accents (??)
« on: August 25, 2009, 12:43:08 PM »
Hi long time here, been so busy, I apologize... :blush:

Vase or a pitcher I guess.....with the handle, I guess a Pitcher....

Bought this a short time ago.  Has a unique drip glaze of browns, greens, yellows, mauve colors.  It is about 8 inches tall.  It has gold accents around the opening and on the handle.  It is marked on the bottom of it, but I can not make it out (must be my eyes  :old: ).

It looks to me like it says WEST - _ _ _ _  _ _ _ _ _Y.  Of course I thought of West Germany, but there looks to be a hyphen and no numbers on it like most of the West Germany I have saw.  Can anyone make it out?

TIA (Thanks In Advance) me  ;D

Hiya Rose, it's been too long (and quiet!!!  ;D) without ya!  :kissy: 

I *think* that it reads WEST -  (then some numbers) - GERMANY - the numbers seem to be something like 218/18 ...? That'd be a form number and height I suppose.
Cheers!

I was wondering IF that was what it was, but then the writing (West then something, then what looked liked maybe Germany ??) I was not sure.

Got at a garage sale for $2.00....so hope that was a good deal.  :gcheer:

Thank you for that info.  I was leaning to West Germany, but the writing did not seem to match that exact wording....since I only have a few pieces.  Plus, I did not know WGP had gold accents on it.  Boy, have I got lots to learn....but I have SUPER TEACHERS here.  :kissy:

I found an item with gold (gilt) trim and kinda similar colors here

http://www.rubylane.com/shops/prairiewindantiques/item/RLP-568

See, I never knew (WGP) had things done up with gold trim.  I was leaning that way when I bought it, but the writing (looks like WEST then something, then another word) when I was looking for the straight words West Germany...then the gold on it....threw me too.  I did guess in my first post if it might be WGP, so I am learning all the time ;)

So what year would this be?  And how desirable is this stuff (U Keramik) on the WGP scale?

Like are fat lava WGP more collectible over this type (U Keramik) ??

:)
