The period immediately following World War II saw an unparalleled outpouring of manufactured goods as the war manufacturing capacity turned to production of domestic goods for a peacetime economy. This was especially true in Europe as manufacturing facilities were rebuilt and retooled. Particularly in West Germany, where the reconstruction was promoted and supported by the Allies, ceramic factories created on outpouring of products that were exported around the world. Famous pottery marks from this period include Scheurich, Jasba, Dummler & Breiden and others. The fifties, sixties and seventies saw an unbridled experimentation in color, shape, texture and form that blurred the line between utilitarian objects and art, mass manufactured and make accessible to a broad market.
