James Fantasy Art Pottery pitcher

Post by Germanshepherd72 on March 13th 2017, 1:01 pm

HI everyone. I have a piece I found that is not signed but is labelled. I've spent hours but can't determine the James name. I'm sure it is an easy one, but does anyone know about who this maker is? Thanks for your help. I'm more of an art glass guy and just learning about pottery.

Welcome to the forum :)
I'm not finding anything under that name either so I'm wondering if it's a retailer's label. The pitcher itself might be by one of the Art Nouveau / Art Deco factories like Royal Haeger. This Haeger pitcher has a similar shape -

Here is a shot of the base without glare. No markings I can see.

there are no markings but we can rule out many manufacturers now just by looking at the foot ring

Thank you for your help. I don't feel so bad now. I thought with the label that it would be easy to identify, but it has been a mystery. The glaze/finish is absolutely perfect and made me think it might have been manufactured. There isn't the slightest bit of crazing despite the label appearance and font appearing to date the piece as being older.
