German term or phrase: KMK
KMK Germany found on a piece of pottery
Dori
English translation:see below
Explanation:
Since you say it's pottery, I assumed Keramik might be part of the name.
(In old china, the KM often stands for Köngliche Manufaktur, but as far as I know, there never were any royal pottery manufacturers.)

A search on "KMK" was way too extensive to yied anything useful, however, a search on "KMK Keramik" brought the following result. If the piece of pottery you refer to is of recent origin, it might be what you were looking for.

Thank you for your response to my question re: KMK on a piece of pottery. I think you are probably right and the information you gave was useful. I don't know how old the teapot is, but it has a small chip on the lip of the pot and the material the pot is made of is a reddish color. I will use your resources to help me identify it. Thanks again, Dori

Explanation:
KMK must be an artist or manufacturer... the closest thing I could find in a Yahoo! search was an artist who works in ceramics named Michael Kempe (as in K.eramik M.ichael K.empe, or K.empe M.ichael K.eramik), but the link just led to a 404 message, so I can't either prove or disprove that theory. Sorry.

K = Keramik


Explanation:
Here's guessing that the last K is for Keramik. KMK is probably the manufacturer. K for K"oniglich might fly or might not, and M could be from a place name, e.g. Mainzer.
"Wenn das man stimmt!?" But could be. Nancy
