I'm not having any success dating this pumpkin turreen.
Apparently Sarreguemines made majolica from 1860s onwards. I've seen little pumpkin jam pots attributed to late 1800s and i saw a pot like this attributed to 1930s, but it had different marks and looked a bit less well crafted than mine.
I've seen conflicting information about the back stamps too.
The raised brown marks on the inside of this one make me think its probably on the elderly side but i just don't know. Are they typical of a particular type of clay?
Anyone know anything more?
Thanks

I'm far from being a Sarreguemines expert but the font for the numbers on the base is typical of the late 19th - early 20th Century.

i have a few sarreguemines plates form 19 century but im not an expert. the words "France" below Sarreguemines gives away that it possible produces between 1920-1950. France with decornumbers says 1922-1960.  normally the bottom should have the same color as the body.

given the color and the quality of the piece i would say its more likely 1950's

I think it's unlikely to be that young. Possibly 20's at a push. The quality of the clay would be much better by then. The bottom of this bowl is very sandy textured and the chipped areas just don't look right for that period. It's far more similar in quality to an English mid Victorian Majolica jug that I have (complete with lozenge mark). But who knows. Why don't these ****** potters date their stuff better?

Also, i saw a later one - going by its base mark - which had much cruder colouring around the stalk area.Mine is far better painted/glazed in that area.
