J. Uffrecht & Co ? any help for a rookie collector

Post by alexus on May 1st 2016, 3:21 pm

hello i am new to the collecting world. After the passing of my aunt last year i was given a lot of her possession and that's when i began to have an interest in antiques. Any way i am a rookie in this antique world and just want help on the following item.  I like this piece alot and my research tells me that it seems to be from Carstens/Uffrecht, probably in 1940 range. Anyway, can someone give some info on origin and possible value. Intrigued by the red sign that seems to be the initial of the potter, i think?

thanks a million times,

My first thought was it looks like the N and crown for Capodimonte but might be Uffrecht porcelain or Potschappel, Saxony




Nice quality. There have been later copies from the Far East but this looks genuine . Red squiggle could be painter's mark.

We don't give valuations. Best to check out Completed & Sold Listings on eBay to give you an idea of what it's worth

My thoughts are that it might come from the factory in Doccia, Italy that was started by Carlo Ginori in 1737. It has been taken over a number of times since then and expanded and still operates.

In the 19th century they bought moulds and models from Capo di Monte and were allowed to use the crowned N mark on these reproductions.

I agree with Naomi that the red squiggle is the painter's mark, which is really for quality control/output notification within the factory.

thanks a million for your reply. Are you able to put an estimate on the age of the piece?

Unless the marks on any piece of pottery are of help or the style, it is very difficult if not impossible to tell the age of a piece from a photograph. Much easier if you can touch and hold it, so, although you might be new to pottery, you are in a position to be the best judge of that.
