Marei – Identification

Usually used reddish clay but this was sometimes more brown or dark brown depending on suppliers. Marks are usually impressed into the base. Marei marked the base of items in many different ways.

Some items have only form number identification.

A large proportion are overglazed making it hard or impossible to read markings.

Some are marked “Made In Germany/W.Germany”.

Items were rarely given a size number. Where they were this was either using a 1/2/3/4 system to notate relative size.

Some items had no markings on the base at all.

It is unusual to find a Marei item with a label.
