I picked this up a few years ago in PA. I collect art pottery, but I liked shape and color and glaze. So, I bought it. It has a matte green glaze. It is 7 in. high x 5.5 in. wide (handle to handle). The seller said it is McCoy, but only sells a few collectibles that he picks up here and there. He sells mainly rugs, table runners, blankets and the like. I cannot verify which pottery made this, though. I saw this very same piece at the Grove Park Inn in one of their many display cases scattered around there Lobby and many hallways. Can anyone help me to identify/date this piece? Thanks!

Mystery Solved

    It is important to show pics of the bottom to help ID a piece of pottery; it tells a lot of information. My guess from what I am seeing is that your piece was made by Pfaltzgraff. It would be an early piece, when they were making art pottery. Hope this is a useful starting point in your research. Mac

    Thank you, Mac. The bottom has no marking whatsoever, but has same glazing, except for the outer ring. ~Nick

    Sorry, I spoke without looking. I made a mistake. I just looked at our piece and it is unglazed cream-colored clay on bottom. It is not marked, though.

    I am not sure if there is much in the way of documentation out there. I collected and then sold few pieces of Pfaltzgraff 's art pottery about 5 years ago - that is how I recognise this piece. If you post your piece on the Glass and Pottery board (eBay) and put Pfaltzgraff in the title there are folks there who know their stuff. They might be able to direct you somewhere. Mac
