  1. More likely Robinson Ransbottom Pottery Co. (RRPCo). In which case it would have been made in Roseville OH, but not by the Roseville Pottery Co. If you can add a picture of the base, even if unmarked,...
  2. Produced by The Potting Shed. Newer production, “96” (1996) is the year produced. Dedham pottery used the rabbit motif, but much earlier.
  3. Found it in the Paradis “House of Haeger” text on page 115. Identified as shape number 516. Also a line drawing of the form on page 109 - a reprint of a 1929 catalog.
  4. Oops Haeger. Just caught my misspelling
  5. Just my opinion, but I think it was made in the last 50 years. Signature looks like Les W..? Perhaps a tissue paper and pencil rubbing of the mark will give you enough letters to search.
  6. Perhaps early Heager?
  7. Absolutely Camark Pottery, in their buff “cornmeal colored” clay, used briefly in the 1930s.
  8. I think it’s recently produced, probably Chinese.
  9. Look closely at the hand decorating. Sometimes the markings are embedded/hidden in the motif.
  10. Love Starcks glaze. She was way ahead of her time
  11. Tried google images but couldn’t find the form. Went to the Rans, Ralston & Russell ZSC text. It’s shown on page 67, identified as shape “H7”, 7” diameter.
  12. My best guess is Zanesville Stoneware Co.
  13. Don’t think it’s ZSC. I think teens-20s German, Carl Gebauer or Carl Schack.
  14. Nice! First Hoganas vase is exceptional! Can you post a pic of the ZSC vase base? Never seen an example or heard of them producing any crystalline glazes. Glaze looks like Carl Schack.
  15. There was (is?) a Hawaiian potter that made similar wares with applied flowers. Seems like I remember her wares were unglazed bisque but it’s been a long time since I’ve seen any of her work. Somethin...
  16. Or maybe Cronin China?
  17. I know I’ve seen that shape family before but I’m drawing a blank. Possible guess, Taylor Smith and Taylor (TS&T)?
  18. Very cool rutile glaze!
  19. Nice! I’ve seen it in the books also, but never actually seen it in person or for sale.
  20. Maybe “gargoyle handles” would get you something on a search?
  21. About all I can tell you is the term you’re looking for is “stilt marks” or “stilt pulls”. I like the form, but I don’t believe I’ve seen it before. The lack of any markings or distinctive base featur...
  22. Absolutely Tlaquepaque/Tonalá touristware. Probably circa the 1940s to early 50s. Nice find in white.
  23. Form #3411. Produced 1940-42 only. Terra Rose Artware line. Glaze is “Terra Rose Green”
  24. Spot on. Shown in the Sanford’s GCP text on page 54.
  25. I’m pretty sure it’s early Brush McCoy. I think the glaze is referred as a “Cusik” (sp?) glaze after the person who developed it.
  26. Might check the following on your dog figurine: Chic, LePere or Grindley potteries
  27. I think Mexican, probably from the Puebla or Oaxaca area, circa the 1930s or early 40s. These are often called “portrait pitchers” and were made to serve pulque.
  28. I’d agree Haeger - but later, circa 70s to 90s.
  29. Page 56 of the Jack Chipman Bauer text. Is that it in yellow?
  30. Base looks Bauer
  31. Did a quick google image search, looks like ZSC’s frog form was substantially different
  32. Went through the Sanford P&R text, there are a number of similar forms pictured. None of the examples had holes to the base itself, only on the back of the frog. Also I’d expect the clay to be red if...
  33. Unglazed interior, interior looks like no attempt was made to finish the clay and open body = a large lamp base missing the hardware?
  34. search “Wells Art Glaze” you should find other examples and info on the company
  35. Dog looks familiar, any markings?
  36. Weller “Knifewood” (I think..). Also possibly “Burntwood”. Nice find!
  37. Peters and Reed would be red clay - most of the time. Muncie, white clay, always. I have seen Cliftwood vases with the same rust colored mottling on the base. Looked through the Hall text “Morton...
  38. Or Monmouth/Western Stoneware
  39. Maybe Cliftwood?
  40. That’s a hobbiest glaze that was popular in the late 60s early 70s - definitely not a Haeger glaze. Haeger may have sold a few out of production molds to another company that reproduced them, or sold ...
  41. Just a guess Redwing Pottery?
  42. I’d agree USA - likely circa the 1940s t0 early 50s. Can you tell if the clay itself is tinted yellow with a clear overglaze or is it a white/buff clay with colored glaze?
  43. IMO it’s legit, just later production. Probably circa the mid 1950s to late 1980-ish? Although production could’ve been as recent as 2012 when the pottery closed. A similar, circular, marking styl...
  44. Check into North Carolina pottery. The light colored clay should help narrow it down as should the distinctive handle attachment style. I’d guess circa 30s to 50s.
  45. I’d guess one of the Cole family potters of NC, perhaps Nell Cole-Graves.
  46. Interesting piece, I immediately thought Hungarian - but looks like Tagines would likely be North African in origin. Did a little research and CASSR could stand for Crimean Autonomous Soviet Sociali...
  47. Ok. I’m rethinking that. The piece looks like Awaji ware but that particular mark I’m not finding as an awaji marking. Perhaps a competitor that produced in the style of. Someone should be along to fi...
  48. I believe it’s an Awaji mark.
  49. I’d bet she dates circa the first half of the 1940s, due to the prominent USA mark. I don’t recognize the form. I’ve been searching for the last 30m assuming she was likely produced by Brush McCoy, Hu...
  50. Line name is “Florentine”
