Scheurich Pottery is ceramic ware produced by the Scheurich & Greulich Company.
Brief history and description
The Scheurich & Greulich Company was founded in 1928 in Bavaria, and are well-known for producing a variety of pottery vases which feature unique and colourful glazes.
A Scheurich pottery vase typically features a marking of a semi-circle on the bottom of the item, followed by a glaze design number and a word which clarifies the style of the item as well. Some of the many styles of Scheurich pottery vases include the "Wien" or "Vienna," the "Amsterdam" (also known as Onion or Sliced Onion among collectors), the "Jura" (known for featuring a red and black glaze) and many more.
The company still continues to produce pottery vases today, and their most recent vases often feature embossed three-circle marks on the bottom of the items.
Guide for collectors
A Scheurich pottery vase which dates back to the 1930s is considered to be more rare and valuable. A Scheurich pottery vase which features the "Jura" style of décor is considered to be valuable, but not necessarily rare.
Restoration of a Scheurich pottery item is recommended, but only if there is noticeable damage. However, restoring the item may decrease its value.
