  1. Can you share a photo of the backstamp please
  2. A pic of the marks on the base would help. Also why is the photo upside down?!
  3. I have a pitcher in the same colors as the urn style, made by Robinson Ransbottom. Sometimes they used a stamped marked, which sometimes wears off.
  4. I presume there’s no marks on the base or signature on the design?
  5. Crossed swords?
  6. Here’s a link to the marks from, a great resource for Staffordshire pottery
  7. Kilncraft was always well marked, but can see why you would think that
  8. Can you please post a pic of the maker’s mark?
  9. This is what I was referring to:
  10. If it’s hollow inside with an opening, it’s probably a wall pocket. The rectangular hole would be use to hang it on the wall.
  11. Can you post a photo of the maker’s marks underneath please
  12. This is a very similar piece, which appears to have been made in China. With the lid it is usually described as a ginger jar
  13. Has a Hermes scarf look to it
  14. Ani 3= year 3= 3rd edition?. Possibly French
  15. No marks on the base?
  16. According to marks4antiques, this mark was used by Langenthal of Switzerland between 1902-06, however there are many Asian copies, as it’s an easy one to imitate.
  17. Sirdar used to be one of the biggest suppliers of knitting wool, knitting pins etc in the UK. Could have been a promotional gift for keeping your knitting needles in?
  18. A teapot, not a kettle!
  19. I don’t think this is very old, possibly 1950-70’s. I’m not an expert, but believe this is from the Nove area of Italy. The Toscany company is an importer/exporter of products from Europe and Japan
  20. Maybe not as yours is taller, maybe a water jug for on top of a bar?
  21. I think it’s maybe a novelty drink holder from a bar or restaurant. I’ve never seen them in that form, usually white. The hole is where the straw goes. We used to have some from a local Japanese resta...
  22. Rough translation is salt glazed stoneware from Alsace
  23. The Alsace region of France is right on the border with Germany, so there is a huge German influence on the pottery produced there.
  24. Stunning!!!
  25. Very realistic details. I love it!
  26. Isn’t Caldas a place in Portugal?
  27. Here’s a link to Gray’s marks from the, a great resource for all things Staffordshire
  28. I love that you share all this information, but could you please share a pic of the maker’s mark?
  29. Maybe Zanolli of Italy
  30. I think it was made in Germany by Waechtersbach between the late 19th-early 20th century. Here’s a link to a piece showing the mark in the stamp, not impressed form.
  31. It’s beautiful!
  32. Can you crop the last pic, just showing the lower 1/4 of the base. There is a stamp there but too small to read, cropping should make it bigger
  33. If you follow the link vetraio gave you, you can actual contact the person who runs the website, and I believe he also has a discussion board specifically for Asian ceramics
  34. try
  35. What’s the black writing?
  38. Could be German. Fulda porcelain used a blue underglazed cross mark in the period 1765-80
  39. Try
  40. I love it! Never seen that mark before though.
  41. Here’s what I found out- The USA importers Bawo & Dotter imported porcelain from Europe and used the “Imperial Crown China” name on pieces from Austria between 1894-1920, so they may have also used th...
  42. I know what the Awaji mark looks like. They did have cobalt blue glazes, and I was merely suggesting that the maker may have done an altered version or a “twist” on their usual mark inside that of the...
  43. It is a beautiful set and even more special because of your family history.
  45. Exquisite!
  46. A division of Villeroy & Boch. Here’s a link to a great resource for German pottery, so long as you have a name to search:
  47. Oops, forgot the link!
  48. I’m always saddened when an exporter/importer has a porcelain maker mark their creations with the exporters mark, so i did a little more research to try and find the actual maker’s mark. I found this...
  49. I am not an expert, but I would say that the color on your vase is very rare and unusual for that time period.
  50. It bears the marks of Mitsui Bussan Kaisha, which was a Japanese export company in the early 20th century.
