I think this is stoneware, it's definitely old. The only marking on the bottom is the number 386. Anyone know what it is?

I have a teapot with a similar look to it, because I couldn't read the mark through all of the crazing, I did a rubbing on the bottom and it appears to be the Keystone with a P in the bottom center, signifying an early Pfaltzgraff.

    The design seems to based on a design by Keith Murray for Wedgwood in the 1930's.

    Thanks Vetraio50, I appreciate your comment. Just Googled Keith Murray/Wedgewood, it does appear to have the same shape as one of his pitchers but this one seems more rustic.
    I wonder if there were knock offs in the 30s?

    Sure! And earlier than that too!
    Import tariffs began in the late nineteenth century, meant to protect markets.
    Check out the history of copyright.
    Note this one does not say where it was made.
    Perhaps it was not meant to travel far?
    What sells can be easily copied....and sold.
    It comes down to who's copying who!
