Nice red teapot we bought yesterday.

Bottom pic:

Looks like a stylized R above a 60, and made in GDR on the bottom.

1. a Carstens company at Rheinsbach never existed.
Confused with Carstens Rheinsberg, near Berlin, East Germany ,
post-war VEB Rheinsberg, GDR

2. A town with the name "Rheinsbach" doesn´t exist in Germany
but there is the town Rheinbach, near Köln, Cologne, West Germany with a long tradition of
earthenware pottery, e.g. Rudolf Schardt (Ruscha)

3. The vase is signed "582" / central "R" and "W.GERMANY"
saw another one, signed "583-22" etc.

Stamps as WEST GERMANY or W.GERMANY weren´t used before 1945,
probably not before 1955.

4. form numbers 582, 583-22, red clay, W.GERMANY, after 1955:
these characteristics apply to Carstens Tönnieshof,
cf. Makus, Keramik der 50er Jahre: Carstens 582/9cm 583/18,22cm.

5. I think the sign "R" is a misleading clue, may be the initial of the modeller´s name.
Please note that there are more vases and jugs signed "R" in german pottery pre- and post- war.
Some of them haven´been identified as yet.
