    I've had this for a while. It's sitting by the side door. I guess it could be used for umbrellas, walking canes or whatever you choose. I love the deep burgundy color of the glaze. It appears to be quite old and shows a lot of crazing along with various scuffs and dings but that just gives it character. The top does have a glued chunk out of it that's inside the collar. At least it's not missing. It may have spent some time outside too. There is a distinct seam in the top half at it's widest point so it was made in two pieces. I found a similar one on Ripley Auction's site that says it's possibly Zanesville Ohio art pottery, which is just south of where I live. The bottom matches exactly to mine and it's also unmarked. So a local piece more than likely. -Mike-

      Hard to read the color in the photos I'm seeing, mikelv, I see them as amethyst, perhaps shading to red in the first pic. Is the Ripley pic the true color?

      I know, early morning sunlight isn't very good . Mine is a very dark burgundy so it has that purplish-red hue. The Ripley picture is just for shape and bottom reference and comparison. Their piece is 25" tall which is really big. I have to say I don't like that orange-red color at all. Here's the link if you want to take a peek. :)

      Perhaps Zanesville Stoneware Co. But could also be Brush MCCoy, Brush or Nelson McCoy
