[ SALE - was $40, reduced to $28 ]

Lovely handmade mid-century style creamer and pourer by Gotek from Venezuela. Dark brown shiny matte outer glaze with smooth lighter interior glaze on these nice forms. They remind us somewhat of Heath Ceramics pieces. Unsure what function the taller pourer had. Marked on bottom with "Gotek Colonia Tovar Venezuela". Uncertain of the date of manufacture, but guessing 1970s-80s.

Gottfried and Thekla Zielke immigrated to Venezuela from Germany in the 1950s. In 1959, they started a studio called Ceramica Tovar, and became quite well known, winning many awards for their work. "Gotek" is a combination of their two names, and pieces that are signed with it are unique as opposed to mass-produced from molds. The Zielke's children still produce pottery from the same location today. Thank you to MidModMom for the help with this background.

In good vintage condition with no damage. These are some irregularities and pops to the glaze because they are handmade. Please see the 4th photo: shown is a line which is not damage but appears to be from a thread that stuck to the body, as well as a firing pop where a small part of glaze has come off.

Creamer measures about 3.75" tall, 2" wide top, 4" widest.
Pourer measures about 5" tall, 2.25" wide top, 3" wide at bottom.
