Q: Help Please! I’ve looked everywhere I can think of to identify the mark on this little vase. I can't make out the words, and I don't know if the impressed number is 806 or 908. The vase is about 5 inches tall. Any identification help will be very appreciated!


A:
This mark was used by Strehla Keramik, a pottery founded in Strehla, Germany, in 1828. The town became part of East Germany in 1949 and the company was nationalized. It went out of business in 1989. A lot of the pottery was made for export. The word “Import” is stamped under the company name. The number on the bottom is the model number. Your vase was probably made after 1949. Small vases with no decorations sell for $50-$75.
