    It is a "portrait vase" -- I can't read your mark -- can you?

    Watch ebay for very similar items:

    Darn -- I should have guessed Warwick! You beat me to it.

    Warwick China company was located in Wheeling, West Virginia -- 1884-1951. I am pretty sure it is transfer-ware, not hand painted.

    It's still called a vase, even though it is a pitcher or ewer shape -- meant to be decorative, not functional.

    Watching the search term "Warwick -Weller" in the ebay Art Pottery category is your best bet to track values of similar pieces. Weller Pottery had a Warwick pattern, but Warwick China is a separate company.

    Here's the ebay link: http://pottery-glass.shop.ebay.com/i.html?_nkw=warwick+-weller&_sacat=27&_odkw=warwick&_osacat=27&bkBtn=&_trksid=p3286.m270.l1313

    Check your library for this book about Warwick China -- http://www.amazon.com/Warwick-China-John-Sr-Rader/dp/076431016X

    This just in -- IOGA Ware is the name of the line of Warwick pieces.

    Some were hand painted, some were transfer ware.

    wow you are good,,, and a million thank yous.... as I look at it, i am pretty sure it is a transfer, coming from a un trained eye.. I would like to sell it, but I also don't know how to go about that either.. and also that blue vase you replied to me about... I have spent endless hours,/days trying to find info on these 2 items,
    with no avail...so I sure appreciate your help... thank you, thank you!!!!!

    p.s. do you think that parisian in script is a signature???? would that mean it is signed???
  9. Bill, 4 years ago
    The script impressed markings on the bottoms of Warwick IOGA items are the names of the shapes. The markings in red mean 2 things - the letter is for the background color and the number is for the decoration.
