    I found these at a local thrift store and purchased them because I thought they were adorable. I don't know or recognize the maker or the artist's signature that is on all of them to the right bottom of the fruit painted on their front. Any info would be appreciated. Thanks

      Hi, Does the bottom of any piece mention where it was make e.g. England, U.S. Denmark. I just did a google search 0n spongeware pottery marks. There's a lot there, and not all showing marks. https://www.google.ca/search?q=spongeware+pottery+marks&client=ubuntu&hs=0Ce&channel=fs&tbm=isch&tbo=u&source=univ&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwiA3-ePgsPJAhXuqYMKHZpmAXEQsAQIGw&biw=1700&bih=868#imgrc=_

      Nice to see you found so many pieces together as a group still.

      No marks on the bottoms of any of these Gillian.
      And Collectomaniac I was happy and surprised to have found them together. These are small, so I believe they belong to a child's tea set originally. I have never seen any like them though.
