      Thank you!
      The green one looks like treasure Craft with the wood grain texture on the bottom. They are mostly identical either than that.
      Quite the Wild West during this period with pottery companies merging and splitting and ignoring copyrights etc.
      Thanks again!

      Yes, there was a ton of companies in that area doing pottery. I suggest you reach out to someone in California. Like a historical society or museum that is in the hotbed areas for pottery. I've found them very helpful in the past. They love researching..tell them you have a mystery mark that may be significant

      And of course, be sure to update us if you find any information.

      Actually I am in California - Orange County.
      I grew up in East LA, block from US Pottery of Paramount.
      If only I knew then what I know now!
      I find so many similar shapes and glazes of the various potteries eith copying each other or the employees jumping from one ship to another - not to mention the mergers and takeovers!
      I do have quite the collection from years of picking... But I can ID most all of them...

      I wonder if this is an early California Pottery item? I know they made a lot mid century ashtrays but they clearly stated California Pottery.
