Hoy – Identification

Hoy always used a dark red/bown clay. Items typically have some form of identification marking on the base. Base markings are hand inscribed and generally very difficult to discern.

Some items are more clearly marked Hoy. Sometimes it appears to read more like Hey (two images on the right below) although due to similarities (clay, glaze, form) I would think that they are all produced by Hoy and it is just unclear marking.

A minority of items are marked clearly with a form number and size along with a stamped Handarbeit mark.

No Hoy items were marked with company stickers.
