where should I look to move on my collection?

Post by Fabiola on September 15th 2014, 7:27 pm

Not sure this is the right place to put this, but here goes. I have collected 30 or so pots, mainly Scheurich, mostly fabiola colours scheme, and now I need to move and downsize. Where should I go to shift them? ebay, local auction, car boot sale? Is there an alternative. I love the look of the pots in the right light and setting, but they will never get displayed anywhere, so they have to go.... Sad Waaah

My best guess would be ebay.

Can't see them doing very well in a local auction to be honest.

If you had a lot more stuff I'd suggest trying a flea market/collectables fair.

Looking at the cheap buy it now prices on eBay with no takers, I think that my first thought, landfill, is the most sensible suggestion.

No, I never have been and it was something that all dealers in 20th century stuff regarded as mass produced worthless dross back in the 1990s.

Since then it as had its moment, I assume because there was nothing else left for new dealers to create an interest in. However, that moment has passed and if you have had fun collecting and enjoying it then fine but to waste time listing,packing and posting something with is once again of little interest seems pointless to me. Far better to stick it in the bin and move on.

There are some nice shapes. Stick them on at 99p and cheapest postage you can find (but don't skimp on packaging) on a free listing day and see what happens.
I thought that blue Fosters and Devonmoor pottery was worthless so I gave it all to charity but looking on eBay some pieces sell well.

the scheurich pieces you are talking about are the real low end of WGP and can be picked up for a or 2 at car boots , they are not popular with collectors , I wouldn't dismiss all WGP as some can fetch very high prices , higher even than named studio pieces , Ruscha , Roth , Ceramano , Schaeffenacker are ones to look out for , they were all considered garbage a few yrs ago , even by the germans , but there are still keen collectors out there who will pay lots if you know what your looking for .

I think it all peaked when the Mark Hill book came out, but the world is awash with WG
items at the moment, Like Ed says, certain colours, and Lava glazes still have some
followers. Can't imagine just how much of this was imported and sold at the time.
