Sorry can only post one photo at a time as I'm useless.
It has no marks.
A creamy coloured glazed interior Which has crackled.
It really looks like its been in the garden for years like moss/lichen colour.
The dark glaze seems to repel water.

I have a similar one, different shape. No mark.
I think its by Piet Groeneveldt, Dutch pottery, 1960s.

I don't know for sure, but that's the closest I could find.

I've sent a picture of it to the Bericht van web site, they are asking if anyone has Pieter G pots and asked me to send them a photo.
Will let you know when they get back to me.

I meant to add the finish to the pot is called travertin effect and was much copied by German potteries, so Mine may be a copy.

"Maybe Volker will know for sure." Sorry, i donīt, Naomi. A well known mystery and yes, it was
"much copied by German potteries", however i donīt recall any convincing attribution.

Water wrecks the glaze on the inside . Found another one with an old piece of oasis in it but had to throw it away because it was ruined.

I've got a reply from Olivier at the Pieter Groeneveldt website.
She said she was "almost positive it was not made by Pieter, but from a German factory copying his work" but does not know which one.
Oh dear : 0
