    TR ceramics and general things cultural

    Got a couple of interesting pieces that I'd like to show and get some feedback in a peaceful manner discussion if possible.

    First off, a ceramic wall plate by the S&R maker of Wewelsburg SS Schule fame. A rare maker yes, but what makes this particular plate intriguing is the impressed spiral on the bottom with a pencil inscribed initials HH. Aside from Herman Historica there is only one name with these initials that comes to mind. Paid around 30 Euro for the peace to the unsuspecting seller, so the chances of it being tampered with to raise the value are next to nil.

    This is what a typical S&R plate bottom looks like

        What an incredible post. Do you think the pencil signature/ spiral motif could represent an individual artisan working under S&R contract?

          Typically an artist's signatures would not be written in plain pencil. Besides, S & R were the artists

            Here is another rather large period plate dated 1939 on the back. The interesting thing about this one is that two years prior, the author was awarded Gold Medal for his ceramics exhibited at Das Deutsche Haus at the 1937 Paris Expo. A very popular in the 30's Lebensbaum motive . Never seen one growing out of a viking boat before though.

                Beautiful patina and period symbolism including two trees of life with runes and monograms for the man and the woman.

                          Interesting to see one more plate from that known maker of which I have had two different ones so far - Steve also has or had at least another plate of the same maker.
                          That Ahnherr - Enkel dedication originates from an official and public speech of Himmler in 1937.
                          Seems to be an interesting and very rare type of wood being used for yours, would be interesting to see a close-up of that producer´s tag.

                            The first 'HH' names that come to my mind are directly connected to Seelos and Rottka and they are Heinrich and Hans, their sons, who continue to make pottery under the firms name.

                            Whether this piece has anything to do with them, I don't know.

                            I don't know how to tell a pre-war made to a post war made piece of pottery from this firm by just markings. Are pre-war markings different to post war?

                              Not that I can tell.
