Braemore Carstens 1960s

Braemore Carstens

Some die hard fans of West German Pottery will know that the Carstens brand was produced under license in Australia during mid 1960s by Braemore Australia…but it is not a very well known fact…and it can lead to confusion when identifying West German pottery sometimes.

Judith from the Australian Pottery 1960s to date blog has a comprehensive post full of useful information about the history of Australian pottery Braemore and its relationship with Carstens, and also with the company Haeger.

Braemore Pottery was opened in 1939 and ran until around 1985 producing pottery under its own label plus the Braemore Carstens label from the 1960s.

One of the most coveted Carstens designs was – Ankara. Designed in 1964 by Von Scholtis it was produced in both Germany and Australia – and is now a very sought after Carsten’s design.

German versions of the Ankara design were made using a reddish-brown clay, but a white clay was used in Australian production.

Braemore Carstens pieces are marked with an embossed B-C and the model number as in the image below.
