    I love my mystery pottery and enjoy the thrill of solving them, but sometimes it's nice to have the pottery easily recognizable. These 4 vases are marked Belgium and are made by Faiencerie Thulin pottery company around the 1920's. I do have a possible unsigned Belgian vase and will post it separately hopefully someone will be able to confirm or deny whether it is.

      Very similar:) I know these 4 are Belgian for sure because they're marked, but its a good route to check for my mystery one:)

      Do you know if there is a collector's reference book or anything for Thulin pottery? A Google search didn't find much information for me.

      I had a look too and their work is still not really appreciated in Europe. In one of the books on Belgian pottery « Faïence et Porcelaine en Belgique, 1700 - 1881 », Editions Racine (1999) the glazes are described as "dans le style pompier, il faut reconnaître qu’à Thulin on a battu tous les records ». Drip glazes and "décors 'flambés' " were overused !!

      There's something about them in French here:

      There's a video in French here that is really worthwhile:

      You could look here too:
      http://www.medium4you.be/La-faiencerie-de-Thulin,13554.html

      It seems Willy Van Ransbeek had an e-journal on Thulin pottery. No idea if it is still going. It went to two issues in 2010.

      There's this too:

      and some photos from the 2010 exhibition:

      Thanks for all the links! I was able to learn a fair bit with the help of Google translate. I recently bought two pieces and it's interesting learning about them!

      Thank you Poirot and Vetraio, I've missed everyone on this site and appreciate all the info.

      do these have sparkle in the glazes?
    18. Poirots_Moustacians Poirots_Moustacians, 7 years ago
      They don't have sparkle in the glazes. You can see them here: http://www.ebay.com/itm/2-Drip-Glaze-Vases-1-Belgium-1-Brush-McCoy-Onyx-Vase-/301436010897?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item462efc8191 and here: http://www.ebay.com/itm/Vintage-Belgium-Faiencerie-Tulip-art-pottery-/231471417859?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item35e4c58a03. I'm actually not entirely sure the first is a Thulin.

      What markings do the bottom of the two spouted pitcher have? I recently purchased one and in addition to the typical "Belgium" mark it had handwritten "06/13 Flamond JWC". The glaze is correct on mine so I don't think it's an aftermarket piece made from the mold, but rather an artist signed piece. Not sure though.
