Pottery mark Query - Bow and Arrow with Semi-Porcelain Written

Pottery mark Query - Bow and Arrow with Semi-Porcelain Written:- Hi. I was given this plate along with a few other pottery items. Was hoping someone might be know something about this plate. As you can see from the pictures it is a beautiful light blue and pink colored with the floral print in the center. You can feel tiny little bumps close to the edge of the plate going all the way around. The mark on the back of the plate has an arrow facing straight up with the words semi porcelain with 2 other unknown marks by the bottom of the arrow.

The only info I was able to get was from my aunt who said she bought it at an antique shop many years ago, but never really did any research to find out who made it or what its actual value was. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

Kim

Hi Kim

This is the mark of Harker Pottery Co of East Liverpool, Ohio, USA. They were founded in 1890 and continued until 1972. This mark actually dates to the 19th century and was their first one. Their bow and arrow marks have been revised over the years, but always feature an arrow of some sort and normally a bow too.

Hope this helps

I have a white sugar/creamer with the same markings as this plate. Could you give me an idea of what the value would be for these. They also are have gold highlighted stripes on the top middle and bottom.

Thank you very much for your assistance.

Harker Pottery query
by: Beckie

My long since deceased grandparents' home is about to be torn down and I managed to rescue grandma's plates from the walls before the trash men came to strip it. One of them has this bow and arrow mark. It says "Souvenir of Kamiah,Idaho" with a picture of two lions and the word "Protected" on it. Do you know if Harker pottery did these kinds of souvenir plates and when it might date to? The plate is small, only about six and a half inches, and also has a vine design in gold around the edge. Thank you for any information you might be able to provide.

Just can't find the makers mark anywhere.

What years did they use the Bow and Arrow with Semi Porcelain Written on the pieces? I have a bowl, but can't find it anywhere online. It is white (or off white now) with a gold line around the middle inside of bowl, flowers of pink, blue, yellow around the lip of the bowl. There's a different symbol type mark about every 2 inches between the flowers and then gold around the outside edge. Any ideas?

Is this mark also of Harker company? NEW

I found this old oval serving bowl, I've had it so long I dont remember where I got it. It has a back stamp of STONE CHINA written above a bow and arrow, the arrow actually separates the word stone from china. Below the bow is cursive HP and on the other side of the arrow are the letters Co. Is this a Harkers pottery product? How old do you think this might be? I have a photo of it but I dont see an attachement button.
