    I spotted this bowl in a junk shop and I liked it immediately. Usually I'm not interested in modern pottery, but this one was just too pretty in my eyes to leave it there. It has a D&B mark on the base, so it was easy to identify it. However I can't date the decade when it was made. I found out it was made before 1980 because from this date onwards the full name was used on their marks.
    Dumler & Breiden company was founded in 1883. They were one of the leading pottery companies in Western Germany during the 1950s and 60s. D&B produced a wide range of pottery of good quality until 1992, when the factory closed its gates.
    Marks are nearly always impressed: the crossed swords with DB, form and size number and the word Germany.

      I heard from someone,...sometime ago,...that when it says only Germany, means pre WW2.

      Hi. I was hoping for this when I bought it - to find out the bowl is at least 70 years old. But I read somewhere this particular company always signed its ware with 'Germany', never West Germany - even in the second half of 20th century.

      D&B are one of my favourite German pottery companies. I like the way they used different browns and relied a lot on texture. It's a really nice bowl Martika.
