  1. Absolutely Tlaquepaque/Tonalá touristware. Probably circa the 1940s to early 50s. Nice find in white.
  2. Form #3411. Produced 1940-42 only. Terra Rose Artware line. Glaze is “Terra Rose Green”
  3. Spot on. Shown in the Sanford’s GCP text on page 54.
  4. 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.
  5. Might check the following on your dog figurine: Chic, LePere or Grindley potteries
  6. 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.
  7. I’d agree Haeger - but later, circa 70s to 90s.
  8. Page 56 of the Jack Chipman Bauer text. Is that it in yellow?
  9. Base looks Bauer
  10. Did a quick google image search, looks like ZSC’s frog form was substantially different
  11. 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...
  12. Unglazed interior, interior looks like no attempt was made to finish the clay and open body = a large lamp base missing the hardware?
  13. search “Wells Art Glaze” you should find other examples and info on the company
  14. Dog looks familiar, any markings?
  15. Weller “Knifewood” (I think..). Also possibly “Burntwood”. Nice find!
  16. 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...
  17. Or Monmouth/Western Stoneware
  18. Maybe Cliftwood?
  19. 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 ...
  20. Just a guess Redwing Pottery?
  21. 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?
  22. 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...
  23. 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.
  24. I’d guess one of the Cole family potters of NC, perhaps Nell Cole-Graves.
  25. 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...
  26. 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...
  27. I believe it’s an Awaji mark.
  28. 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...
  29. Line name is “Florentine”
  30. It’s Roseville, drawing a blank on the line name but someone will add that - it’s a common line
  31. Can you add a pic of the base, even in unmarked?
  32. There’s some good info at the link below. Great find, I’m sure not many of those still around.
  33. Made by Upsala Ekeby, nice piece!
  34. Recent Chinese pottery is sometimes marked with western markings. In my experience, it’s more common to find western markings than Chinese markings. Often they have western markings and a made in Chi...
  35. Actually I think it’s Asian, probably Chinese circa the last 20 years.
  36. Unusual color combo for Calif. Perhaps GMcB? - maybe one of the Catalina line shape families? I can see the California script mark. I’ve been trying to make Cemar or Catalina out of the other mark, bu...
  38. Yeah. Think it’s Jais Nielsen for Royal Copenhagen. Very nice!
  39. Possibly Royal Copenhagen?
  40. Yep, Brad Keeler it is
  41. I believe I found the form on page 165, a catalog reprint, of the Rans, Ralston & Russell ZSC text. Identified only as a “flower bowl” with no shape number given. Available in four sizes: 5”, 6”, 8” &...
  42. The linear/rectangular stilt pulls are a dead giveaway when paired with the glaze and form. Most likely only the “10” shape designation on the base. ZSC rarely marked their wares.
  43. It’s Zanesville Stoneware Co.
  44. Nice piece! Did you mean Savoy China?
  45. Can’t provide much more information, but the number is most probably the shape designation.
  46. Check Weller “Nile” for similar glaze. I agree, base looks wrong and the mark isn’t what I’d expect on a piece from the Nile line.
  47. Very cool. Any markings?
  48. I can’t tell from the pic. There should be a little line or bar, above or below, one of the letters in Royal, Copenhagen or Denmark. Can you tell me which word, letter and if over or under?
  49. I like it! Can you add a pic of the flat base of the figurine, even if unmarked. Caped cat holding a candle. I get a “Made in Japan” vibe from it, just for the ‘weirdness’ factor - but it could be ...
  50. It’s RRPCo. The /- mark (sometimes referred to by collectors as a “slash and dash mark”), preceded by the shape number, is a dead giveaway. It’s shown on page 97 of Sanford’s Guide to Robinson Ran...
