Eva Zeisel

At Schramberger Majolikafabrik

These tea glass holders and their tray were produced in 1929 by the Schramberger Majolika Fabrik, in the Black Forest region of Germany. These pieces afford a rare and early glimpse into her dynamic collaboration with the firm. At age 23, Eva kept their 350 employees busy for almost two years, during which she introduced over 200 new designs. Although the Bauhaus was using geometry in a serious way at the time, Eva used geometry in a playful and popular way. These works represent the earliest works by Zeisel to appear at auction.
