    I finally got around to picking up the last piece from a large German pottery and porcelain donation at Salvation army. I saw Antique Rose's post from yesterday with her Carstens dish and I figured I better get it before it was gone. Luckily it stayed in the display case for the last 2 weeks and didn't sell. Pretty sure this is a Carsten's piece as well and a bit earlier than the 60's since it's only marked Germany. I believe West Germany was used after 1949 so this piece could be late 30's to mid 40's. Most of the other pieces in this collection were from the 20's and 30's so it's possible. The company has been in business since 1900. I saw a picture online of this same shape piece with a different design but it had a rattan handle hooked over each tab on the end. It was in the Getty collection and dated from 1957. Mine is missing the handle but I don't think it matters much. It's still a very nice piece and in perfect condition. -Mike-

      Thanks Karen :)...I do love German pottery especially those fat lava pieces. It's a good time to start collecting as the market for these is fairly deflated. I think the value will go up in a few years myself.

      Thanks Rose :).... Now I have my eye on a small Nippon scenic vase. It's beautiful and should stay put for the thirty dollars they're asking. They fired my other friend in production so getting antiques on the cheap is much harder now except for jewelry which my cashier friend is in charge of. She was such a sweet lady ( age discrim' in my opinion) and owned an antique store at one time. Very knowledgable and hooked me up with a lot of wonderful things. Especially my Asian pieces.
