Can anyone help me find out the circa of this vase, pot, vessel? There is no stamp or number anywhere on it. It stands a ft. tall by 7" wide. The only noticeable stamping is the thumb indent on the bottom of each handle. Thanks in advance for any input.

    I have also heard that seams in glass bottles, etc, means they are machine made.

    Once you know the name of the style maybe you can research it?

    It also could be a piece that someone bought in greenware, cleaned themselves (hence the seams on the sides. They probably didn't clean them well enough) applied the glaze and then fired themselves. That doesn't make it less valuable-to me it makes it more valuable. I love that someone hand made it.

    From one thriftier to another, you made a good find. I would have snapped it up at Goodwill, too. Value lies it how much you enjoy it regardless of age or maker.

    Are there any marks on the bottom?

    Pieces made in 2 separate pieces are newer! Need to see a pic of the bottom try to identify!

    You might be able to take pictures of it & send it to Replacements,com & they can probably help identify it. Awesome people & you can probably get your answer quickly! I've sent them things asking for help to identify & they were more than willing. Take pictures of all sides, the thumb prints, the bottom & any distinguishing marks it may have & where you found it! I hope they can help you! Looking forward to see what you find out! Good Luck! Teresa

    You are welcome, I found a eight piece set of China in a Thrift store for $15. & it was beautiful & without a blemish. I looked & looked & someone told me send a picture into Replacement,com & within the hour they emailed with the information I need! God Bless!
