Bay pottery (Bay Keramik) was founded by Eduard Bay in Ransbach-Baumbach in 1933 and was one of the most successful ceramics factories in West Germany. Their most famous designers were A. Seide and Bodo Mans. Today Bay ceramics, which range in design from the highly bizarre to extreme Modernism, are highly popular with interior designers and collectors alike. The factory, no longer able to continue with their costly production process, ceased to exist in 1997.
The colors in the glaze are vibrant reds with subtle blues.
