5 coloured pottery cones, what are they? and who by?

Post by afterglowretro on April 21st 2014, 6:46 pm

any ideas what these could be, no hole in the top like a pie funnel would have, maybe candle snuffers / christmas decorations. Look like French / British studio style, any ideas?
approx height 7cm / 2.75in each.

I've seen these in garden centres. I think people put the over the tops of canes for decoration or to stop them poking their eyes when they weed. Happy

they are all slightly different sizes and a bit irregular which makes me think they are not factory made. Cane toppers could be a possibility, they must have some age to them as they came with other pottery from the 1960's, and that was German, French and Norwegian!

A photo of the base would be useful, but until then I'd go with the cane toppers.

We really need a photo, otherwise I'm going with little gnome hats.

I've seen them also in garden centres. You put them over canes or whatever to make a fairy-tale garden!

................ as if a gnome has come by and left his hat.




Not real gnome hats of course and probably made in China from the description of the inside.
