I ordered two items from RiverHouseArtPottery. Both were perfectly described, high quality items. They arrived timely and well packaged. I would highly recommend this business.

Thank you it is lovely! I had my eye on it for myself. Decided to give it to a friend. Because it is so beautiful.
Enhancing Your Home and Mine with Vintage Pottery
I started collecting art pottery about ten years ago. (My children were grown and I had a little extra money). Several years ago my husband and I decided to hand build a craftsman design-inspired house. That experience fueled my obsession with well-designed vintage art pottery. Our new house (the River House) "told" me that it wanted to display beautiful, vintage pottery. My collection grew and I kept finding things that were beautiful, made me smile, etc. So, now it's time to share. And that is why I opened a shop on Etsy!
I enjoy researching the history, maker and age of the pottery pieces that I find. While some art pottery is now extremely valuable, most of it was originally created for the middle class buyer and thus was priced very affordably. The people who purchased these items simply wanted to make their home more beautiful--just like you and me.
Much of what I obtain is quite dirty with paint spots, pencil marks, etc. It is a joy to see a pot come alive once the layers of grime have been removed.
As you can see, my shop is very personal. I only sell items that I am proud to display in my own home. I love creating displays of pottery and I'm always experimenting with new combinations of pieces. So, basically, until you buy an item from my shop, I am living with it and enjoying it every day!
Born in Alexandria, Egypt; but a resident of beautiful Colorado for the past 25 years. Married with three young adult children. Came to an appreciation of vintage pottery after a career in nonprofits and local politics.

Accepted payment methods
- Accepts Etsy gift cards
Shipping rates quoted are for the lower 48 states. Shipments to Hawaii, Alaska and Canada will require an additional amount to be determined prior to the sale. Due to the fragile nature and heavy weight of most of my items, I cannot ship to Mexico or other international locations.
Shipping rates quoted represent a flat rate and you will never pay more than the quoted shipping rate. However, if the specified rate ends up being $3.00 or more over the actual price to ship, I will credit your account.
Combined Shipping: Because of the fragility of vintage pottery, putting two pots in the same package is usually not practical. However, when it can be done safely, I will combine shipping and buyers will receive a credit when the actual shipping amount is $3.00 or over the total quoted rates.
Refunds and Exchanges
In the unlikely event that an item arrives broken, I will issue a full refund, including the shipping cost, immediately upon receipt of photos of the item.
If a buyer changes her/his mind after an item is shipped, I will happily issue a refund for the cost of the item itself without shipping once the item is received in the same condition in which it was sent. The buyer will pay the return shipping on the item.
