    I think you will find this is Bennington Potters and not Bennington Pottery.

    Bennington Potters started up in 1948 and is still in business. They are very good about answering questions if you send them a photo along with the question. The * before the mold number indicates Bennington Potters. They also have a site online if you want to do some research. Don't confuse them with Bennington Pottery because there are decades and hundreds of dollars of difference between them.
