Is this a Karen Karnes vase?

Post by cbw0001 on October 3rd 2016, 2:29 am

I would like to confirm whether this great salt glaze vase was made by Karen Karnes. The mark is similar to the Karen Karnes mark but it does not appear to be exactly as you would expect. I appreciate any help that you can provide. Thank you

No. Karen Karnes mark is two separate Ks, the first back to front. This mark has come up on various collectors groups but so far unidentified. But check out The Marks Project website of US pottery marks and it's sure to be listed as soon as they have an ID

I thought I would resurrect this post to see if any progress had been made regarding the identification of this mark? I checked the Marks Project but with no luck. Just curious who actually made this since I like it so much. Thank you in advance for any help that you can provide.

Other pots with the same or similar KK mark have turned up but as far as I know itís still a mystery. I expect The Marks Project are also keen to solve it so they will probably be the first to know when itsIDed.
