My mother has had this for a long time, another mystery! Its got these little faces on the base, which is what makes me think its not some high school ceramics class job. Has a turn-of-the-century look to it, very interesting glaze when you see it in person. Does this style look familiar to anyone?

    Unfortunately in the 1990's there was arevival with lots of studio potters rediscovering this glaze .
    Your piece looks great I'd be proud to own it. will try digging up some info if I can.

    So you think its contemporary? You're probably right, its not dirty enough, and the bottom isn't very worn.
