Pottery Planter: Possibly Mediterranean - Italian - American?

Post by potterymad62 on March 28th 2016, 4:18 pm

Help please with nice signed pottery planter with exotic bird design. Possibly Mexican, the Med or North/South American. Don't know the marks and not easy to read.

Thanks Ern.

My guess would be Spain or Portugal so the med as others have said. The ending of surnames with co is very common in that part of the world.

Cool! So we all agree from the Med. Would be interesting to know the initials of potter, as for the pottery name I can only work out Ranchio or something.

Thanks again to you all for your replies.

Done a little online search and Rancho is a place in Portugal so just could be from there. Though I agree it does look like (io) on the end, then looking again it looks like a (c) very difficult what ever.
