    These were some of my Flea Market finds a Week ago on 11/16-17/2019.
    First was this little Pixie Figurine. When I found it I thought that it might be from California, but I couldn't read the bottom mark. Turns out it's Made In Occupied Japan, but also is a design by Millicent Andrews, from Portland, Oregon for her Company Millesan Drews Pixies, called Pixie Potters c1950, in California, and given to Hagen-Renaker, for production, and finally to Cali-Crown Importers, where they were made in Japan, for a cheaper price. The bottom mark is a red stamped 'Shimazu' crest and "Made in Occupied Japan". So is easy to date the early 1950's The Pixie is 3 1/4"high x 2 1/2"wide x 2"deep.
    Next is the 3 3/4"w antique Quimper Faience Pottery bowl with fleur-de-lis design on the exterior. This is what I think it is, but can't find information on the bottom mark, I found other pottery with a similar design, but not a match. The paper label was glued over the under glaze ink mark, and I removed and taped it under the mark on the bottom, it reads Shipped by E.D.E.T. Paris Made in France, but I don't know if the ink mark is a number or letters or both, and which way is up! Help! :^D
    Last is the Rosenthal Continental China Pedestal Dish it's a mid century modern Raymond Loewy design c1960's "Bird Cage".
    The Rosenthal Dish is Made in Germany, but unmarked, it's 7 1/8" x 6" x 2 5/8"h, and has a scallop with crimp edge Tray, and a Pebble textured glaze finish.

    Thank you for looking all comments are welcome! :^)

      Clever finding Bill! All are very cool, but I love the faience vase. Beyond my knowledge but I think it's wonderful.

      Thanks Karen, I thought that might be a good piece when I saw it, but after I got it home, and cleaned the dirt off, the beauty of it showed off! :^D

      Thanks to the both of you Kevin(vetraio), and Jenni, for taking a look, and for the love that you gave! :^)

      I think my favorite is the little bowl. The Rosenthal is very interesting. Are those bird cages on the Rosenthal or something else?
    7. billretirecoll billretirecoll, 10 months ago
      Hi Mrstyndall, thanks for your comment! :^D Yes 3 Bird Cages of different shapes and Birds, and is why the Rosenthal Line is called "Bird Cage"! :^)

      Thanks for the love given,
      and AdeleC, it's appreciated! :^)
