Not trying to be snotty, but just want to point out the exposed white clay on the setting ring means your mold is not redware . https://www.collectorsweekly.com/pottery/redware Don’t know who ma...
Sorry for all the questions, is there a hole below the beak or anywhere other than the hole for hanging? Thinking it might be a twine holder/dispenser. Look like a very well made piece. Guessing you a...
Not sure why it looks so familiar. Reminiscent of wares produced by several artists at California Faience in the 1930s, but those typically have a red clay body. Also similar to designs by Dorr Bothwe...
Is the clay stained to produce the skin color, or is the entire figural cast with that color stoneware?
Could you add a pic of the base/back, even if unmarked
FWIW, not sure it’s what I’d consider Raku. You could try a pencil and tissue paper rubbing of the mark to see if it’s readable. Also, dusting the mark with powdered sugar might enhance contrast a...
Probably a total red herring, but it looks somewhat consistent with the “Modern Fossils” works, a collaboration between Judith Marchand and David Horowitz. Again, a very long shot, but you might email...
Pic of the base, even if unmarked, might help
Virginia Demarest. Decorator from 1900-1903.
It’s Rookwood. Right where the glare is on the base pic, is the artist’s cipher. Can you add another pic without the glare? Vase dates around 1900. You can google “dating rookwood pottery” and find t...
My best guess would be NC or KY pottery. I agree, older, 1930s to 60s? Handles and distinctive neck will be your best bet for narrowing down attribution
Can you add a picture of the base, even if unmarked.
Initially thought it might be Andrew Matheson’s (UK) work. However, after a little research, it appears he consistently uses a distinctive impressed mark. I find myself anthropomorphizing the cob...
I’m guessing it’s heavy for it’s size? I’m thinking it’s a student piece, very nice cerulean blue glaze.
It’s actually Brush McCoy in their Green Onyx glaze
Might check James Aarons, looks like one of his Geode Bowls - I don’t know what his signature looks like though...
Guess: “Calif. Orig.”?
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?
