Well made ovoid vase with handle ... MONIKA MAETZEL

Post by touchdry on October 28th 2018, 11:27 am





Picked this up in a French bootsale.

It appears to be very well made. Correct me please if I am wrong but this feels like a piece of stoneware.

I do not know what type of glazing this is other than it is beautiful ...

It stands 3.25"/8cm high by a diameter of †3.75"/9cm

I want to say that this is European ... even Scandinavian (I can dream!) ... but in truth I do not have that kind of confidence.

The mark underneath is either a chervon above two Ws plus a dot to the left ... or the other way up could make it twoMs and a V plus dot to the right. Or something completely different.

Either way can anyone shed light on this fine ceramic?

Thank you for your time.

I believe itís by Monika Maetzel, Hamburg. I came across a coffee set with a similar mark.

This is very interesting ... I looked up Monika Maetzel and came across Birgit Best - who's work is inspred by Maetzels. Here is Birgit Best mark ... what do you think?

Interesting. Iím not finding anything by Brigit Best, but I am finding a number of pieces on German eBay and Amazon with your ĎBrigití mark which are attributed to Monika.

Did she study under Monika? Itís possibly why both marks are on one of the pots

I am not sure she was mentored by Maetzel, but on Bests site she is qouted as saying (this is a google translation):
"I work in the tradition of Monika Maetzel"
