Here’s another similar example with a different base/clay. I’d have thought the interior of a storage jar would’ve been glazed? https://www.goldentriangleantiques.com/chinese-stoneware-glazed-marta...
Vintage Roseville Pottery, think the shape/glaze family name is “Orion” - but that form also shows up in other glazes, so verify.
Earthenware - pottery, not porcelain. I honestly can’t see anything that points to “Qing late 1880-1900”. I’d be interested to see similar known examples of wares from that period with a drip glaze of...
My guess would be Japanese. Perhaps designed to be arranged like: https://www.google.com/imgres?imgurl=https://t2.gstatic.com/images?q%3Dtbn:ANd9GcQ-qadm365R1LQ83sxMvEKZUUIKg1DEpR1Ha0JntBHQ01mSCD6Q...

The crackling you describe is called “crazing”. It’s not an indicator of age as it can be done deliberately, occur right after removing the item from the kiln, or later due to rapid temperature change...
Can you add a picture of the base, even if unmarked.
Absolutely not Mostique. I’d guess contemporary Asian, likely Chinese.
I’d try letting them soak in white vinegar for a few days. Should loosen some of the mortar enough for you to gently remove it with a scraper. Follow it with an equally long soak in tap or distilled w...
Check Rima Padova
I can definitively rule out Frankoma. I get kind of a Scandinavian vibe from it.
It’s a crystalline glaze, beyond what, IMO, most hobbyists can produce. Probably a studio potter. I don’t recognize the initials, but you might search for studio pottery marks And get lucky.
Did a google image search w/ no luck so I went to the Metlox 2nd ed. text by Gibbs. It’s shown on page 260 & 261, a 1940 catalog reprint. Shape designation is “50-G”
Pretty sure it’s Metlox pottery
Did a google image search and found a larger version identified as having been made by Alvino Bagni for Raymor, in the 1970s. They referred to the style as “brutalist”
I’ve seen the form before. Check Rosenthal Netter (an importer/distributor) and Raymor
Might also check with Crocker Farms. They’re good about authenticating salt glazed stoneware.
Trying again, sorry if this double-posts It’s Camark Pottery of Camden Arkansas
Perhaps William E. Ross of Iowa? He produced during that time.
A pic of the base, even if not marked, might help.
Great find! I have a number of Daga pieces over the years. Never seen that one though
Sorry I missed this when it was posted. All guessing, but the mark might be a stylized bull - rotated 90° cc? I get an Italian vibe off of it. Sorry I can’t be of more help.
Often misidentified as Shawsheen Pottery (including in Lehner’s Encyclopedia of US of Marks) it’s actually the mark of Strobl Pottery of Cincinnati Ohio. Great find!
Definitely not Roseville and doesn’t look like any Rosenthal I’ve ever seen. Mark is distinctive, you might try a google image search of the mark.
Here’s another from the stonecraft line https://imged.com/mccoy-pottery-pink-blue-banded-stripes-milk-pitcher-1429-stonecraft-cream-9392233.html
Looks like the link I provided redirects to the sellers active page, scroll down to see the sold item.
I think more recent production. Found a sold item on Ruby Lane that appears to be the same shape, perhaps a smaller version. https://www.rubylane.com/item/1477293-TCx20102/McCoy-1429-Canyon-Pitcher
Marking is Asian, my guess would be Japanese? You might try searching Japanese pottery marks sites for a match.
Thanks for adding the pic. After seeing the base, and since the interior is unglazed, I suspect a more recent Asian import. If so, likely Chinese.
Could you add a pic of the base, even if unmarked
Should’ve clarified that, are there any snowflake-like formations in the glaze?
Probably Asian, likely Chinese. It’s hard to tell, but is it a crystalline glaze?
Legit. Metlox Poppytrail 235-T tumblers from their “200” series dinnerware line.
Google Roseville Futura Vase and then search the images, You’ll find a couple of examples of the form. I’ve seen a lot of Futura, but never that form before. Nice!
My first thought was Roseville - maybe Futura? vetraio50 is right, a pic of the base will help.
I agree, Korean, or Asian at least
Check Weller Greora
Might look at Franz porcelain? I can’t see enough of the mark to make an educated guess.
I love it! Have you considered re-taking the pic against a black or white background and trying a google image search? Form’s distinctive enough you might get a hit. Assuming the base is open, it migh...
Can you add a pic of the side of the vase?
It was Denbac that made the Cointreau bottles. Plenty of examples if you google, but nothing resembling your bottle. Sorry for the red herring.
Been trying to figure this one out for a couple of days now. Reminiscent of Czech “Alienware”, but I’m leaning toward French. Thinking the mark may be what it contained, rather than the potter. One of...
Can you add a pic of the vase? Try dusting the mark with cinnamon to increase contrast and post what you’re able to make out.
Could the word towards the bottom of the ink mark be “BELGIUM”?
Probably dates from the teens to early 30s, just going by the style. The mark is shown on https://www.porcelainmarksandmore.com/resources/unidentified-marks/czechoslovakia/index.php But not ide...
What does the mark say?
Think you can scratch Brush McCoy. I just did a lot of searching and couldn’t find a match. Also, the clay seems a bit too orange-y for BMc? I believe the sticker remnants are just an old price tag
My best guess would be US production circa the 1930s-40s. One of the large companies. Base looks like Brush McCoy, but I don’t typically think of their wares when I see a solid matte blue glaze. Might...
Great! Glad you were able to figure it out. Really stunning piece
