2 pots from a flea market to ID

Post by tom.s on January 2nd 2016, 8:26 pm

Hi all,

I've found 2 small pots at a flea market, they are not in perfect condition but I like them.

POT 1 - (HEIGHT 8 cm,)



POT 2 - (HEIGHT 14 cm.)




I've spent some time searching in Internet but I couldn't find any of the marks and I'm just curious to know where they come from and what kind of pottery they are.

If anybody has any idea about it please write me back.

Thanks a lot

Tom

Well they are both Faience (tin-glazed earthenware), and look old, but don't
recognise the marks.
If you are in Italy they are probably Italian, with those numbers.

Agreed, possibly Italian. Savona, Naples sort of area.

They look to be two very different types of pot.

The first looks to be a lot older than the second and is a typical storage jar from the late 19th century. 80% chance its Italian for olives or such like. The French also made them and had very similar marks almost as if they wanted to suggest Italian origin Laughter But I think a safe bet is italian

The second is pretty crude Italian vase in the blue and white Dutch style popular from around the first world war up until the mid thirties. I have seen the design before, in fact my father proudly came home with a car full of it from a trip to an antique fair. 75 bought him over a hundred parts of a dinner set with a mountain of tureens, sauce boats and dinner plates. We did track down a name but I forget and no it wasn't a grand company. It is now in my fathers third shed awaiting a summer car boot Shock I guess that makes yours the same 1930's, Italian and made for the domestic market as it has no country of origin.

In my first message I forgot to write down dimensions of the pottery that maybe can help for ID:

POT1 height is 8 cm POT2 is 14 cm.

I understand that all of you think the origin is Italy, so I'll restrict my search for Italian pottery marks.

Thanks to all for your opinions and to share your knowledge. If you have any other idea please inform me.
