Grenzhausen (Höhr-Grenzhausen)

[1] Steingutfabrik Merkelbach & Wick AG (1880 until 1921)

The company of Merkelbach & Wick was founded 1880 in the town of Grenzhausen, a small town that merged with the neighboring towns of Höhr and Grenzau in 1936, resulting in the town of Höhr-Grenzhausen. The company mostly produced beer steins, ewers and vases and applied their trademark to their products as impressed version comprised of the fancy letters "M&W" above "Gr." and all enclosed in a circle. The letters stand for Merkelbach & Wick and Grenzhausen; it is common for the mark to be only partially impressed or indistinct.

[2] Steingutfabrik Wick Werke AG (1921 until 1984)

Although the company dissolved in 1921, the Wick side of the firm continued operation of the factory under the name Wick Werke AG. Only fine earthenware and porcelain products had a stamped ink underglaze mark, stoneware always had an impressed mark.
