"Not necessarily! That may have been the "Rule" but potters certainly didn't follow it, LOL
I've got several English pieces with "Made in" that date before 1920, and also some of my late Majolica pieces as well. Probably…"
"These are called "Amphora"Type oil jars on stands. Do they come in two pieces, or one?
Size is? What type of clay is it, porcelain, Ceramic or?
It's hard to tell from a few photo's, but I think these are modern. Not real…"
"Interesting! It reminds me, very much of the German/Austrian type of Majolica wares from the turn of the 20th century. Schiller comes to mind, right away, which would be WS&S - Also carries the marking "Austria or Made in Austria" - I…"
"Well, actually there might be a "unifying thought" and it did occur to me, or it may just be "me" seeing more than there is, LOL
But, the style it represents is similar to a couple of things. And a jewelry artist or Artisan might…"
"Hi Mark, I'm pretty sure what you have here is a "new old" made up art piece. It is common for artists/jewelry makers/artisans etc to take "found" materials and make up something new from them. The idea being both artistic…"
"Yes, These appear to be "Chalkware" ie Plaster of Paris. The style most likely is 1940's to early 1950's, when "Asian everything" was in style! Have you ever seen the TV show "I love Lucy"? they had a…"
"I agree with LB Lorenzo. This is most likely a decanter of some kind. The outfit this gent has on looks to be from the 1900's. Those who would wear this type of costume would be in service job. ie.. Bell Boy, Messenger, driver etc.. "
"Sorry, I fear I am clueless on these. They are more crude though, is that what tips you off that they are American, as opposed to English?
They look very old, so just as a guess, perhaps the East Coast?"
"Hi Emily, I've got a hunch that what you have here is not Mexican jewelry at all. It may have just got mixed into a lot.
Instead what I think you have is Middle Eastern or India origin. The crudeness of the hand-done work is typical of those…"
"That's what I thought too Betty. I thought the rounded one's were for warming up the beds, but according to what I found, somehow they used these things. The bed warmers have longer handles, and are usually metal.

Thanks for replying! No, my Vicki isn't a scientist. She used to work as an economist at Texas Instruments, I think, then became a romance novelist (writing as Victoria Chancellor, her maiden name). She is from Kentucky and Chuck might be from there as well, not sure, but they lived in Texas for probably 30 years.
Thanks for the friend request. Why do you think that my vase is French St. Cloud? I have looked at pieces from that period, and it doesn't seem to look anything that was produced from that time period. My best guess is that it is from Owens pottery, circa 1900, when this glaze and painted floral scenes were popular. Many pottery companies were copying Rookwood during this time period, but I can't figure out who this is pottery maker is. I have seen two different pieces with similar markings and the "SCloud" stamp, but I have not been able to identify the maker. Very frustrating. I would be interested if you know anything more about this piece.
Hi Vicki, thanks for your response. I am using a regular pc but when I click on the icon, nothing happens. Next to it there is a space and a button that says browse, I click on it and find the photo I want and then click upload but all I get is that error message. Nothing seems to work.
Vicki his name is Ron McCracken and his grandparents and parents are pretty well known in Harrison. He grew up on Town Hall drive and his parents still live there. We just got back from staying at our lake home in Petoskey and visiting his family.

Depression Era and Depression Glass are interchangeable terms. True DG was made before WWII but we include some newer patterns in our books because other authors did and our readers expect to see these patterns when they open our books, too. Most economists agree that the actual Great Depression lastest through the 1930s and the glass companies continued their production of these patterns up until WWII when the natural resources to produce the glass and the equipment as well was directed to war needs. Jim and I have started using the term "Depression Era Glassware" as young collectors are uncertain what "Depression Glass" means. I hope this adds some clarity. B
