Some You Win, Some You Lose
All pottery arrived today. Wow, fast shipping for both sellers!
These two lava glaze vases?
Mid-century. Old, Fantastic! Finally!
But I missed the bid on another lava glazed vase on eBay today. Boo.
These two handmade vases?
Advertised as having been "bought from a local estate".
Brand spanking new.
Does "bought from a local estate" mean old? Well, it sort of implies it. One look at the bottom, and you can see, these came off the kiln last week, I swear. Not a speck of dust or wear on the bottom, At all. =(
They are nice, but I am looking for "older" pieces.
Then again, the price was cheap. It's the shipping that adds up real fast.
Oh well, some you win, some you lose. =)
Happy Tuesday, I hope all of you have a fun Fourth of July!
