    Hi,
    These are pottery, not porcelain, I believe.
    There are two of them, one could could some restoration.
    They are 9" tall x 4.5" across the top & 4" at the base.
    Looked at two books I have on markings & looked on the internet to no avail.
    Any help is much appreciated.
    Have no idea how old they might be.

      Majolica/barbotine, 1880's/Art Nouveau!
      Certainly French, look like Longchamp impressionist barbotine.

      Hi,
      Thank you so much for your help. I would have never known the maker. The markings did not give me a clue.
