Hi All,

I'm stumped with a piece I just picked up. It's a plate of some description with an absolutely beautiful green almost iridescent glaze. It has a makers mark on the back, it could be a bird or the logo for Ghostbusters, I just don't know. I've searched all the usual places and found nothing. Can anyone give me any pointers please? Thanks in advance.

Looks like very early Ruskin pottery. He used a WHT mark (stands for William Howsen Taylor). The mark was a tiny jewelers stamp with just the letters WHT used just after 1900. If you can't see that then I guess it is the same period but by one of the other English art potters or our friends the Austrians who loved glazes and obscure marks back then.
