      this piece may be a fake. i hadn't realized [but should have] that there are fake Natzler pieces out there.

      have you tried solvent on a small area to see if the marking comes off? Clay color looks a bit off for natzler, but the piece is striking.

      The marking on your bowl also looks a bit "bunched" towards the end. Like the 'LER' was squeezed in to fit.
      After searching online, I wasn't able to find other Natzler marks with that characteristic. All seemed evenly spaced, and none went edge-to-edge on the bases. I did find a couple of pictures with similarly colored clay though.
