Puttis and basket - Moores Bros?

Post by NaomiM on March 26th 2015, 1:59 pm

I keep thinking early 20thC Italian, but hoping for something earlier and British.
Lightweight and I think slipcast rather than molded, but not sure if it's glazed earthenware or glazed Parianware - there is a chip showing white clay, so parian, I think, rather than earthenware.  
Unmarked.
Someone has suggested Moores Brothers, c.1880s. The putties and basket certainly look similar to their style of work, but my putties are hollow and have holes to allow gasses to escape while firing, and I can't find any images of Moores Bros pieces with these same holes. Also the glaze is crazed. (maybe I'm not finding similar images because the shops don't want to show an unflattering side to their wares?).

stylistically, i think this could be by a number of British potteries, including: Minton, Moores Bros, Worcester and my old favourite Bishop & Stonier. Such a shame it's not marked? not even the faintest impression of a mark anywhere?

Thanks. No mark that I can see, just those four stilt marks on the base.

Found a couple of faint, stamped numbers on the base; a 3 or 5 and a 30 or 58. Cant get a clear photo of them

I don't know if the marks will ID it but a pencil rubbing of them might clarify them
