Pottery Mark Query - Incised B, incised symbol, blue W (?) mark
Pottery Mark Query - Incised B, incised symbol, blue W (?):- I bought this lovely teapot a couple of years ago at a local thrift store. The incised B could be from several different manufacturers, but I cannot find the incised symbol anywhere in my many searches. The blue mark under glaze looks like the letter W or U.
I thought this might be a Worcester teapot but the incised symbol has me completely stumped. I would appreciate any information you might have regarding this teapot.
The teapot is in a beautiful blue color, the circles appear to be a very dark green with a circle of dark blue in them. Thank you so much for your time and effort.
p.s.-- The right side of the symbol looks the same as the left in reality.

This MARK HAS BEEN IDENTIFIED ELSEWHERE ON THIS SITE AS the Boleslawiec factory now based in Poland, previously known as a region called Silesia. There is a fuller history on another Boleslawiec query page Incised B Castle Pottery Mark

Thanks for your interesting query, I really appreciate the time and trouble you took to join in and upload your great photos.
First thing to say is what a great looking teapot. It looks very interesting and I too would like to know who to attribute this rather odd and ugly mark to. Nice teapot, horrible mark.
It is definitely an obscure mark - I have looked it up in my collection of various reference books and none of them show anything like this mark.
I looked under W, under V, under, B, under Castles and buildings, under miscellaneous etc etc etc. Not a sausage.
Let's hope we have someone in the know look at this page and tell us.
I hope this helps you with your very nice item.
p.s. The following page is a 'must see' if you are researching fine china - for value and identification:-Researching the identity and value of antique and vintage fine china
