When I bought this guy he was a black bear, but after a couple days of soaking and scrubbing with a toothbrush his true colors are now showing. I have found several bears similar on websites all asking a pretty penny, but this one is different to all the examples I could find. It only measures 8 3/4" high. It is hand finished as all 4 paws, both ears, all four teeth, the tongue and the handle held by his paw have all been attached seperately and are not part of a mold. There are no holes and it appears the honey was placed in the blue bowl and ran down the bears face and off his nose. I can find no marks or anything like it on-line. The few similar pieces are all 11 1/2" tall, molded one piece and are thought to be either Adams & Brimley or Holdcroft.
I would appreciate any help or ideas. Thank you for looking.
recently purchased this ewer. Measures about 14" tall
can anyone identify the mark on the bottom
Sorry my pictures are flipping again
Hi - does anyone recognize the mark on this small pottery creamer. Maybe DLC or PLC? I've looked around some on-line and looked through the C section of Lehner's U.S. Marks book.
Thanks for any help!
Got this at auction. It was called as Waterford; it was in a lot of 15 pieces. I can't find any marking on it. What do the Waterford experts think? Thanks!
I don't know where to being to find this. I googled the initials, but no luck.
Not sure if this is a good place to post this question - but maybe. I've researched this some but found TMI - I wonder if anyone here can shed some light on how to date this jar.
Bottom reads: Trade Mark Lightning Putnam with the number 409 or 419 - the middle number is hard to decipher. Marks on the lid are as follows: PAT 2 JAN. 5. 75, REIS and a small D JUNE 5. 77.
Anyone know what all those numbers mean ... especially the ones on the lid?
TIA for any info.
