Austrian ceramic bowl marked 'Liezen'

sombreuil_mongrelSeptember 5, 2010

Anybody familiar with this maker?

Bowl's about 7x9

Mark underneath is clearly impressed.

And there's this "holographic" mark barely visible in the center of the bowl under a polarized light source.

My grandma received this as a present from her employers probably in the 50's or early 60's. Anybody think it could actually be older? It's always been a favorite thing of mine.

I like it too! I looked in Kovels' 2 books of marks & they don't list Liezen. Sorry.

Liezen is a picturesque town not far from Salzburg. If you type Liezen ceramic in your browser, you'll see quite a number of hits including a discussion of the porcelain decorating factory there on ebay forums.

If you use the search term "Wiener Werkstatten ceramics" you can learn about it.
This manufacturing center was part of the Austrian art movement in the early 20th century.
