  1. Love them all, and especially love that you’re cultivating native plants!
  2. It us a beautiful piece. It may be a Native American pot, as it appears to be hand molded, and the little square medallions look like they have turtles on them, which are revered by some tribes. I am ...
  3. It is Iron Mountain pottery from Tennesee. Very sought after pattern by I think, Nancy Paterson?
  4. Looks like the style of David Gil trigger mug, but bBnningtom potters stuff usually has an embossed mark on the base
  5. I haave heard them called chop plates too
  6. Mayer supplied to hotels, and restaurants, and probably colleges/ universities. “Royal Naval Academy’?. Just kidding, I think the British navy would use British china!!
  7. I believe your mark is upside down, and may be Mt Fuji in Japa, although it is a little worn. Similar pieces to yours were being made during 1900 -30’s. The word Nippon loosely translates to “Japan”...
  8. Any marks on the porcelain. If so post a photo
  9. It is possible they were blanks and painted by a talented ameteur. In the late 19th century and in to the early 2oth, it was very popular in the USA to have a group get together and decorate. A lot o...
  10. Dutton? I found a Phil Dutton with some items of similar form, but no pics of his signature, he has a website, so you could contact him
  11. You may be able to find your mark here, a great resource for Japanese and Chinese pottery marks
  12. copie d’ancien means Copy of old, so it is a replica of an antique piece
  13. Isn’t Firenze the Italian name for Florence? looks like the gallery/store it was originally sold at was in Italy
  14. Possibly designed by Lone Sachs and made by Lundtofte?
  15. Gordon.H ?
  16. The red writing is the retailer from Atlanta
  17. They have been faking marks for years and there’s no place of origin, which would be very unusual on Victoria pottery. Here is a great resource for Stoke on Trent pottery in Staffordshire , and actual...
  18. It looks like a sugar bowl, so would have had a lid I believe
  19. Looks like someone has tried to mimic the Royal Vienna beehive mark. Still nic equality though. Possibly a spoon rest with a missing ladle?
  20. The raised enamel is often referred to as moriage work, and was popular on pieces from Japan at the turn of the 20th century. Don’t know if that helps you or not!
  21. Replacements have just assigned the JB519 for their own inventory/stock keeping, as they couldn’t identify it either!
  22. Try this site, a great resource for Asian porcelain. I think maybe Japanese as I believe the second character ion the metal is Nippon. I believe you can ask questions and he also does appraisals for ...
  23. According to this website, a great resource for Staffordshire potteries, the Anchor pottery company’s Hostess line was introduced in 1961. Victoria is probably the pattern name. Here is the link, alt...
  24. Made by Morimura Brothers of Nagoya Japan, which would later become part of the Noritake company
  25. I am not an expert, but I believe the first character is dai Nippon, so may be Japanese. Here is a link to a great website for both Japanese and Chinese marks
  26. There is also an impressed mark there, it may reveal a month and year code
  27. GDA is the monogram of Gerard, Dufraissex & Abbot of Limoges, France, who would also collaborate with Charles Haviland on pieces. The other mark would be the name of the retailer in Atlanta, Georgia. ...
  28. Here is a link with lots of Japanese marks you can look through. Crane motifs are very collectible!
  29. I am intrigued by these pieces, not only the design but I have never seen that unicorn mark before. I would find a historical society in Trenton, NJ ( I think that’s where Lenox originated, via Bellee...
  30. It is beautiful! At first glance, I thought it was Colin Pearson, but then I saw the cross at the bottomof the mark, so I don’t think so. Sorry
  31. It’s fairly common in cups with a footed base not to be marked. They were made by Takito, in the post WWII period 1948-50’s
  32. PLANT is the mold shape of the piece, but I think they don’t belong together, the bouillon cup is older. If you wanted to get a matching cup I would search “tuscan china cup with wild flowers"
  33. This is referred to as a cream soup or bouillon cup
  34. Not bad for a set around 100 years old!
  35. Looks like pyrex/ milk glass
  36. It definitely has the fine quality of Minton. It does look like a base for a figurine or urn/vase. Here is a link to Minton marks, which could help date the piece. i am sure there is probably a Minto...
  37. It is an unusual pattern, I love it, almost like sea kelp. If you rotate the mark, it appears to be Japanese characters . Try this website, he has lots of marks
  38. I love it, what a great find!

  41. Here is a link to some marks. According to this site, it looks like yours was post WWII, however maybe be earlier as it has the marks often used when its a hand decorated piece. http://www.thepotter...
  42. I think the signature is very close not to be her
  43. PS, I believe the numbers refer to the capacity
  44. I’m sorry but this site does not do valuations, but if you want more into on the pieces, please post photos of the base and close-ups of any markings
  45. I checked on and found more pieces in the pattern, however they didn’t know the name either, so have just assigned their own code. If you’re interested in more pieces, here is the lin...
  46. Possibly Rhea Shea, an Oregon potter;
  47. Could be an escargot or oyster tong? The blade loosens the”meat"
  48. Queen Anne is one of the trade names of the Staffordshire company Shore & Coggins. Here is a link to a page showing their marks
