Art Nouveau Design

Catalog No. M8

Stoneware, impressed, 2.25L, pewter lid.

This is one of 10 designs, all serving vessels, provided to Merkelbach by �Regiersungsbauf�hrer Meyer� (sometime listed as �Maier�) circa 1904. These pieces are designated �M1� through �M11� (M2 not listed) in the 1905 manufacturer�s catalog and marked on the bases in the same manner. Although the actual identity of this designer is today uncertain, Dr. Graham Dry, in his 1981 book entitled R. Merkelbach: Grenzhausen und M�nchen tentatively identifies him as Richard Meyer (1863-1953), architect and director of the State School of Applied Arts in Hamburg from 1905 to 1929.
