Hi Karen

This letter "P" pottery mark is not one familiar to me. It seems too vague, too clean and too generic. I would have to look at photos of the wares to even begin to look into this mark.

==========================
***Update***
==========================

This mark has been identified as a 'fake mark' emanating from producers in the Far East. An older version of the mark above is said to come from Chinese mass production. The 'crisp & clean' one above I have seen with a 'made in Sri Lanka' sticky label still on it. Beware produce made with a sticky label. The 'sticky' label has obsolescence built into it and is meant to 'fall off' to leave just the phoney mark.

Wares of this nature are not regarded as high quality items which keep their value, they are cheaper and more massed produced.

Hope this helps, sorry you don't appear to have an heirloom piece.

I have found this mark made in Sri Lanka and the Far East. See update on the main page above.

Fake marks
by: Giovanna

I've an ornament of a peasant girl with a feeding bag stood near a gate. It's nicely coloured and I think looks an attractive piece. On closer inspection though it has the dreaded Crown over P. Which I know is a fake mark. So although she's kind of worthless, I've not got rid as she doesn't stand out as 'Tat'

CROWN OVER P
by: TERRI from SE NC

I HAVE 20+ OF THESE ITEMS 2 OF WHICH ARE HORSE AND CARRIAGE . SEVERAL CHILDREN PLAYING WITH ANIMALS, THREE GIRLS DANCING AND SOME VICTORIAN FIGURE AS WELL.
I WAS GIVEN AN APPRAISAL (VERBALLY) BY A VERY REPUTABLE ANTIQUE DEALER OF $75.00 EACH FOR THE SMALLER PIECES AND $150.00 EACH FOR THE LARGER PIECES. THAT WAS 6-7 YEARS AGO. THEY OFFERED TO BUY BUT THERE'S SOMETHING ABOUT THEM THAT MADE ME BRING THEM BACK HOME AND PUT THEM BACK IN MY CURIO CABINET. OVER THE YEARS THEY HAVE BEEN GREAT CONVERSATION PIECES. :)
