Roth – Identification

A red/bown clay was used. Marks are usually impressed into the base. Often the base markings are very hard to read due to the glaze application on the base.

Items were usually marked W.GERMANY and had a form number and also sometimes size in cm was included.

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


Roth items are sometimes found with the original label – this comprises a gold/silver label with red Text reading either “roth KERAMIK” or “ROTH KERAMIK Ebernhahn”.
