Scheurich – Identification

Scheurich always used white clay and marks are almost exclusively moulded. The form number markings are always 3 digits long and followed by the height to the nearest cm (with one exception form 405 which is marked as 13.5cm).

Most Scheurich items have no company mark, just numbers and W. or West Germany (where space is short this is sometimes abbreviated to germ). Numbers are usually separated by “-”.
