Charging Earthenware Ram with triangle mark

Post by touchdry on November 6th 2018, 2:51 pm





Hi Folks,

This dynamic piece has remained unknown to me for years since I bought in the UK way back.

The mark underneath has a word running across the widest part which has in the middle of it an M, then there is possibly another shorter word underneath which might distort down to the point of the triangle.

Could this be European? My wife thinks Northern Europe (ie Scandinavia) ... I am not so sure.**Its length is 7"/18cm, width (horn to horn) is 4.5"/cm.

Any ideas would be appreciated ... very much! Thanks.

Cannot really see the mark but from the description would hazard a guess at blue mountain pottery? Although Canadian.

Lovely little thing, great movement.  I can see why Rochelle thinks it may be Canadian.

Blue mountain does have a triangle mark and the clay is the right colour. There might also be other Canadian companies with similar marks. I remember years back there used to be a good website covering all the marks and some of the unusual glazes from the other Canadian companies, it's probably long gone now though.

Thank you for these ideas. It would be great if this was a Blue Mountain ceramic. Unfortunately, the triangular mark is the other way up, with text on the inside of triangle - nothing appears to be on the outside of the triangle. But I will continue to search. Thanks again for the input.
