A great white coffeepot with gold accent lines and a gray pattern at the top from the mid century - mod design typical of the Eames era. It is a Zeh Scherzer piece and the backstamp on the bottom dates it to 1949-1991. The style of this white coffee pot with gray and gold accent trim is very 1950-60s.
Zeh Scherzer was established in Rehau in 1880 by Johann Nicol Adam Zeh. It exported over 70 percent of production to United States. Quality of Zeh Scherzer products was compared to Rosenthal or Hutschenreuther. In 1992 the company stopped production of porcelain.
Stamped on the bottom with green stamp - ZEH Scherzer BAVARIA GERMANY. There is a also a black stamped mark of 720 and what looks like 233 at a 90 degree angle from the 720 number.
Features a tall thin shape with a wider top and a somewhat wide ribbed section at the bottom and a decorative dark grey (or blackish) alternating inverted V design and stripe up a bit higher on the pot. The lid has a great knob, very mid century in shape that features a thin line of gold around its top edge. The gold trim is in great shape - coffee pot doesn't look like it had much use.
Size: 9 1/2 in tall to the top of the lid, 8 in without the lid on, and about 9 in from spout to handle. The top has a 4 7/8 in diameter.
No chips or cracks. In nice vintage condition with some crazing and light wear commensurate with this coffee pot's mid century age.
