Gramann Töpferei



Many Gramann items have a variation of this granite-like glaze, assorted colors, textures and other variants.  In the top center of the bottom picture, there's an example of the typical mark, though sloppy in this case.  It's a Tover R mark for Töpferei Römhild.  Römhild was the location, and it's common for companies to go by such designation, but among collectors, the family name Gramann is as commonly used.









Uhlemeyer



This item is unusual for Uhlemeyer work both in glaze and clay color.  The label is the only marking.
Gramann Töpferei



Gramann, of course, did many glazes other than the granite-looking types.  The mark is almost always strange looking and difficult to read, even in this large version, but once you get used to it figuring it out gets easier.



Richard Uhlemeyer
(Although out of alphabetical sequence, these items are included here as well as later because of the connection with Grootenburg.  Before he opened his own studio, Uhlemeyer worked at Grootenburg.)




Glaze similarity to Grootenburg work is clear, but Uhlemeyer tended to use a beige clay and marked items with a double-horsehead mark.  Items sometimes also had Germany impressed in the dry ring, or the word Germany may be the only marking.
Grootenburg (Paul Dresler) (For similar items, check the Richard Uhlemeyer items.)

These pitcher forms have a touch of whimsey in their curves.  The glaze and etched look are typical of Dresler's designs at Grootenburg.




When marked, Grootenburg items have this castle design.  It's quite often difficult to make out, so it's necessary to identify items by style, clay, and overall look (red clay, and usually a flat bottom).

Please take the time to let us know what you think about the site, the look, the language, photos, items, prices, etc. If you have any questions, comments, or good ideas for conversation, feel free to contact us. There should be e-mail links on every page, and the actual address is ginfor@earthlink.net  

Guarantee: We have a simple, "If you aren't happy, we aren't happy" policy.  If you open a package and suddenly wonder why you bought it in the first place, you can return it for a full refund of your purchase price and the shipping one way.  Your only risk is the cost to ship it back to us. If it turns out that we made a mistake, then we pay the shipping both ways. I won't say "no questions asked" because we will ask so we'll know how to make fewer mistakes.

Payment terms:  We try not to be overly picky about the details.  If we can put it in the bank and pay some bills without any undo fuss, then we'll probably take it.  We're quite happy to take checks and money orders, and we're signed up with Paypal, which is the easiest route if you want to pay by credit card.  If you have some other method in mind, get in touch, and we'll see what we can work out.  Monopoly money, anything you may have printed in the basement, and chickens are right out.
