Made at Haël Werkstätten, Marwitz. The name 'Haël' was derived from the initial letters of Margret Marks's maiden name, Heymann, amd that of her first husband, Gustav Loebenstein (died 1928), with whom she established the factory in 1923. It was closed by the Nazis in 1934. This serving dish and the two following items, are part of the 'Haël Norma' range of everyday tablewares. The monogram contains the letters HAEL and N for Norma. They were all in bright yellow. See also 1994,5-4,1-41
Owned by the artist until her death in 1990 and in the possesion of her husband, the donor, since then. The pieces made in Germany (1995,5-4,1-37), brought with her when she left in 1936.
