Hi there

Do you think this vase could be Brother Thomas Bezanson? The base looks to be initialled MV but I will try and upload some more photos so you can see why I think of Bezanson for this one.

Thanks

First photo out of the two is my vase and I added what I think the initials look like. Compared to a BTB base..some similarities with the V.

Due to copyright restrictions I will have to delete the photos copied off google. Members can use google images to see them if they google the name

In my experience, work by Brother Thomas has a lot of markings on the base because he was very interested in glazes. And he mostly used a white stoneware, where as yours looks like Cranks Clay (a grogg filled brownish clay) so I think it's unlikely your vase is by him

Thank you. I understand now about the stoneware vs clay.

A Google search for "Handmade Small Stoneware Sake Cup with Oxblood Copper Red Glaze by Marcello Dolcini" looks promising, but the MV initial is throwing me off for now. I will keep searching.

The Marks Project has a selection of marks by Brother Thomas.

https://www.themarksproject.org/marks/bezanson

I’m not sure what you’ve compared your mark to, above, is his mark. It looks like part of his annotations that he added to the base.
