Salt glazed pottery - dating and general information request?

Post by Mordeep on August 7th 2015, 9:53 am

Hi all

I thought I would lean on the experience of the members of this forum and try and educate myself about a style of pottery I have always seen but have been sadly lacking in information on. That is German salt glazed pottery. I was born and raised only a short distance from a major German school here in England. As a result there has always been a lot of German people in my area and from my earliest trips to car boots, school fetes, jumble sales I have seen German stoneware. But I know practically nothing about it. So I thought I would ask the people here for advice.

My interest recently got raised by the object in the photos below. Its a great bit of hand crafted pottery with really fun bunnies on two sides. If it was English I could tell you it's approximate age, a pretty good idea even with out a manufacturers stamp who made it and what part of the country. I could even give a pretty good idea what it was worth.

But it is not English, I am not even sure it is German but guessing it is. I have no idea of age, location, value or even what the signature on the base says. It is a mystery to me. So I want to learn a bit. Any tips people have, links or even a bit about my bunny pot would be great (nice to be told what it was used for also). I promise in return to bore anyone who asks about English arts and crafts pottery.

Thanks in advance Happy

German - Westerwald style, as Dan said. Looks like it's signed Cornelius.

I own a very similar pot with a different monogram but it points to Germany being the country of origin

God that is similar. But still no idea on age here. May have to start hunting the web under Cornelius and Westerwald for further hints.

I'm guessing they were both made in the 2nd half of the 20th Century
