I thought it was a buffalo or bison but was told it was a musk ox!! Didn’t realise there were so many similar beasts! What others have you seen? Am having problems finding maker!

Pretty certain it's a Musk Ox

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Muskox

Interestingly it says they were introduced to Iceland in the 1930s, but did not survive.

Just an update. I sold this musk ox to someone in Iceland. I had it confirmed by her that it was a musk ox and that it was by Glit Pottery & it was a very rare piece. She has only seen one before, but she didn’t say when!

Glit (Iceland) - Page 2 Empty Skinny vase, impressed flower or volcano mark - Glit Pottery, Iceland

Post by Grumpy Grandad on April 1st 2020, 5:05 pm

Just to keep you all busy...
6 inches high and 1 1/2 inches across the base drip-glazed vase, very well made and with added clay to simulate...not sure what, possibly lava, rough bark or maybe fungii on a tree trunk?
The impressed mark is likely a flower but I can also imagine it being a smoking volcano or even Snoopy's bird friend Woodstock (or maybe this isolation lark is affecting my mind!).
Over to you....

THe mark is a volcano. I believe it’s Glit Pottery, Iceland.
