ID German set of 3 nesting pots with magnificent gold glaze

Post by CH-Maine on February 19th 2014, 8:29 pm

Picked up this set of 3 pots/planters yesterday.  No maker's mark that I can see, but gold writing on the bottom says Made in Germany, embossed Germany mark and embossed form number 221/23 on the bottom of the largest pot only.

Any idea of maker?  I'm of the mind that there may have been a 4th medium pot in the set given the size graduations between the two smaller ones.





Thanks in advance,
Sabine

I see they are marked made in Germany and look quite modern, could they be 21st Century?

Nic,
Hadn't even given that a thought. Bought them at an antique shop and they felt very mid-century (early 60s) to me. But maybe that's only because I wanted them to be!  Cheeky

Ah, makes sense....otherwise they would have had a West or East identifier before the word Germany.

Dümler & Breiden about 1955, an attribution based only on the glaze would be risky cos some other companies had similiar glazes but the bended (!) stamp Made in / Germany is a distinctive mark, D&B no doubt about it.
As regards the form number 221 i will have a look at 2 catalogs of the 1950s.

VHB64,
Thank you so much for that! That is it. I have the 12, 15, and 23, and just as I suspected there were more in between those sizes but I never imagined two more.
Kind regards,
Sabine

I was surprised too, Sabine, but 1 DM was much more money in the early 50s than for example about the year 2000 and this might be factory, not retailer prices.
