Little pot marked perhaps AC or AO ... plus a hole!

Post by touchdry on October 17th 2018, 5:56 pm






Hello Folks,

This has really got my head scratching! And I'm not talking fleas! I got it in a french charity shop (Emmaus).

I have seen this mark before ... perhaps someone here can recognize it. It could be a french pot.

But IS it a pot? The potter made the hole before firing ... so is it a little plant pot? Or is it something else?

Thank you for reading this ... so, what do you think?

Plant pot, imo, because of the hole, but I suspect they also did them as bowls without the hole because itís difficult get get pants out of something that shape. Might be for bulbs or succulents

... According to the french pottery forum the hole has definitely been made AFTER firing (ie by a purchaser) ... for what reason does not really matter. So, that just leaves the mark ... but nothing has come up yet ... I'll keep searching ... thanks for the input NaomiM
