Keramik Haas Liechtenstein

Keramik Haas Liechtenstein

This pottery was based in Liechtenstein, which is a principality in Europe bordered by Switzerland and Austria. It is German speaking and is one of the wealthiest countries in Europe. Keramik Haas was in business from 1953 until 2005. It was founded by two brothers Friedrich (1918–1990) and Jakob Haas (1915–1996). Initially, Keramik Haas was located in Vaduz, from 1959 onwards in Schaan (both are villages in Liechtenstein). It produced pottery which was for daily use but also art. The pottery was sold in Liechtenstein but also abroad (Switzerland, Austria, Germany, United States). Items are usually marked with the two Hares. (The German for Hare is Hase - similar to Haas?)
