    This piece was in my grandparents home many years ago . My mother passed it down to me . It is about 24in tall . No markings on it . I dont think it was meant to be an umbrella stand ( which is what it has been used for ) because of the handles. Is it a churn maybe ?
    Any help would be appreciated !

      Robinson Ransbottom Pottery Co. (RRPCo) circa 1928-30. It's a common RRPCo form, but very unusual to find it with hand decoration. In th late 20s, RRPCo employed Francesco DeDonatis and Sam Celli to decorate pottery. Both had come directly from Italy, hence the Italian "look" of the decoration. Both went on to work for Weller circa 30-32 and created a line of pottery often referred to by collectors as "DeDonatis Ware".

      Thank You art.pottery , for the great information . All these years I thought maybe German, Dutch or Scandinavian . The Italian influence is definately more fitting. It has a crackled glaze that is not seen in the photos-would this have been made that way ? or does age cause that ?

      oldandsilly, Thanks for the nice comments , glad I could share it with you ! It is indeed near my front door , full of old umbrellas, walking sticks and canes . I put an old towel at the bottom to protect it from being damaged when setting things in it .

      The crackling of the glaze you refer to is called "crazing" and in this case is not deliberate. It's caused by differing expansion rates between the clay body and the glaze due to sudden temperature changes. Crazing is often mistakenly assumed to be an indicator of advanced age, but can occur at any time there's a rapid and substantial temperature change. Not all glaze/clay combos are subject to crazing. If the expansion rates are similarly matched, a vessel can be hundreds or thousands of years old with no crazing.

      So far as I know, RRPCo didn't produce any deliberate crackle glazes. There were a few American potteries and studio potteries that did.
