How to identify this pottery mark

Post by tile on January 5th 2016, 5:03 am

Goodmorning,
I bought this dripglaze vase in a shop in Holland. It must be mid 20th century pottery. It's a big mark, looks like a shield and something like crosses swords. I'll hope somewone recognise this mark. I like to know. Please give it a try, thank you for the interest.

Hi Tile. What a great little vase. It was made by Pilkington in England. That mark is in fact a P with two bumble bees flying around. That mark was used between 1906-1913 and the X refers to the date when this was made. In roman numerals X is 10 so this is 1910. Pilkington had a great reputation for pottery at the start of the 20th century and its highly collectable even up to today.


Sounds like you got a real bargain if you thought it was mid century Excellent
