This was in a box of bits i purchased at auction i thought it had some early
characteristics i know this site is 20thCentury but imagine experts have a good
range of knowledge so decided to post it hope that is ok with folks. The base
has a mark but i have not been able to find it so far but felt although the handle
has been repaired i think it looks a nicely made sort of piece any information as to
where it may have been produced or when would be lovely if anyone has any ideas
thank you for taking a look Dan

Maybe one of the Dresden Porcelain companies

We've relaxed the rules on dates (I have too many 18th/19thC pieces in my collection Laughter )

Looks like Zurich (Swiss), late 18thC I guess.

Looks right, but I've forgot most of what I used to know about this kinda stuff... Shock

Should ofc have a lid.

Really appreciate the help Potty & NaomiM Knowledge is a wonderful thing such a
shame i haven't quite yet gotten enough of it this Pottery is a slow learning process
i started with Glass and that seemed ok compared to un-Marked pottery or for that
matter marked can be just as hard in my book anyway. Thanks
Happy

Page 405, on the Belgium and Swiss marks sheet, fig.49, there's a Z mark

Switzerland.—A good deal of porcelain was made in the eighteenth century both at Zurich and at Nyon, on the Lake of Geneva. The various wares are well represented in several of the local Swiss museums.

The porcelain of Zurich belongs essentially to the Saxon group. The hard, greyish or dead-white paste, and the flowers or landscapes carefully painted in opaque colours, point at once to the origin of the ware. The factory was established as early as 1763, with the{271} assistance of an arcanist, one Spengler, from Höchst. The Swiss poet, Solomon Gessner, took a great interest in the works, himself painting landscapes on several pieces. From Ludwigsburg also came Sonnenschein, to model some clever and lifelike figures. A coral-coloured ware made at this time was much admired. The Zurich factory did not long survive the French invasion: it was closed in 1803. This porcelain is marked in blue under the glaze with a capital Z of German form (Pl. d. 49).
