United Wilson Porcelain Factory Planter
9 1/2" W x 10" H
UW 1897 Mark on the bottom
This company appears to be still active and located in Hong Kong. They sometimes use a white label with red lettering that reads 'UNITED WILSON PORCELAIN FACTORY' and 'MADE IN THE PEOPLES REPUBLIC OF CHINA'. Anyway, the 'UW' mark is often claimed to be a German mark standing for 'Unterweißbach', which is of course nonsense. Recent development offers a new perspective: an item formerly only known to have been found with the repro mark 'WL1895' was discovered, this time carrying one of the 'UW' marks listed here
Anyone want to suggest a Primary and Sub category for this?
