    Approx 11" in length and unmarked, this decorative piece was passed along to me from a Burbank, CA collectors estate. The majority of items I received are mid-century, modest in value and fairly common. As a relentless image searcher, I've been lucky in identifying several other unmarked pieces in my collection but I haven't come across anything with a similar pink, dark pink splatter, gold metallic fleck glaze/paint pattern. Being a newbie, I've barely scratched the surface on the ins and outs of identifying unmarked pottery & glass. My guess would be that it is a locally produced 1950s-1960s piece, but I really have no idea. I prefer to accentuate and show off the pieces that come my way by utilizing them, but I'm reluctant with this due to the gold fleck detail which is leaving me a bit stymied how to best enjoy it.

      I would say so. I had a very long oval piece Pink with the Gold fleck detail and mine was marked Calif Pottery.

      I will see IF I still have a pic of it in my old cell phone pics......the old files....LOL
