Designers who worked at Elsterwerda

Ursula Fesca (1928-1931)
She was in charge for the dekors Not for the shape. Prior to this she worked at the Steingutfabrik Velten-Vordamm (1925-1928). Later she worked for Waechtersbach und Fürstenberg.

Siegfried Möllers (1930-1931)
His function was to setup a "Kunstkeramische Werkstatt" (roughly translatet to artistic ceramic studio). He wasn't in charge for the design, but he did it unasked and made a wonderfull job.

Erich Krause (1932-?)
He became Obermaler (kind of chief painter) for the dekors. Prior to this he worked from 1928-1932 at Carstens in Gräfenroda. Thatswhy goods from this time of both companies looks very similar.

Gret(e) Gottschalk
No more information available at present.

Franz Eggert
He was in charge for the glazes. No more information available at present.

Hi!

Have found a very nice fruit bowl but the markings are a bit smudgy so I guess its

6923a and 1357 and diameter is ca 28cm, height ca 8cm.

Yours Chrille

Hi!

A pair of candlesticks unfortunally without any stamp number but marked Handarbeit and my guess is that they are from the ceramic studio. Yours Chrille

Hi!

A bit simpler fruit bowl marked Elsterwerda M158 1193 and about the same size as the other bowl.
