Pottery mark 'Toni' – Italian? Vallauris?

Post by Alex_s on June 25th 2014, 2:41 pm

I've now got three pots by this maker, and so far have not been able to find any other reference. I'm sure we're looking at something Mediterranean – possibly Italian, but I'm beginning to suspect not because none of my contacts amongst the Italian pot community seem to recognise them. Another possibility is something in the Vallauris area/style. Can anyone help?

One day someone will know. For the life of me, I can't understand why they are not showing up anywhere. Unless I'm looking in the wrong place - so far, all of these have been found in the UK.

That's interesting - I've seen those before but had them as Italian. Are they marked?

Another thought - one of the pots looks like a Spanish wine decanter.

no they're not marked

the decanter is Spanish style which also makes me think it's Mexican
