    Loré, Beesel, the Netherlands (1954-1981)

    The company was founded by Louis Thijssen and René Peeters (the first two letters of their first names form LoRé).
    They both used to work for St. Joris, also in Beesel.
    I am an avid collector of these funky shaped Loré vases, which are designed by Matt Camps (which I believed was called Mathieu, but the Camps family pointed me out that his actual name was Matt, so sorry for all my earlier publications about him with the wrong first name ;-)).
    The pottery all start with the letter "B" followed by a number.
    I thought the "B" referred to Beesel, where the company was located, but people who had worked in the factory told me it was a code for a form or glaze.
    Someone else (Peter Peeters) told me a while ago that all Loré vases that start with the letter 'B' are designed by Matt Camps between 1967 - 1981.
    Also to be seen in "Miller's Collectables 2012 - 2013" on page 94!

      I am not sure if I am aloud to post a link of my website here, otherwise just let me know. But here is my entire collection of Loré vases (that are b.t.w. NOT For Sale)
      http://www.retrominded.com/galerij/lore/

      They start with quite simple shaped forms, but get a lot more complicated while Matt Camps was designing there for a longer period in time. Some workers I spoke with, that worked in the factory at that time, absolutely hated his designs, mainly because they had to take every item after it was fired out of the moulds (with a lot of breakage / damage as a result). But, because of that reason, I adore these so much. I think I have got now about 80 different forms/ shapes, but according to some other experts, there should be around 170 different forms in total. So I am almost half way ;-)
