marbled finish vase - pottery mark query- stamped. native american
pottery mark query- stamped. native american:- I recently purchased a narrow necked ceramic vase ; fat bottomed; about 8" tall x 6" wide at the base. I was attracted by the distinctive cream coloured, bisque fired, green and smokey black marbled matte finish on outside with clear interior glaze.
The visible mark is stamped in india ink colour; a circle enclosing the bust of a native american,wearing a two feather headdress, with sun shaped shield(?)motif behind; part of the name; "-----d?,ree Pottery " and "USA" are also visible.
There is a paper label for the Blackfoot Trading Post in Browning, Montana...they don't respond to queries and none of the obvious internet and library sources have been helpful.
At first I thought this piece was a happy accident from a local slip craft shop selling to a tourist attraction but it looks too intentional.

This time, my knowledge has failed me, apart from the moulded vases of this marled finish (but I haven't seen this shape before) were made by Mueller (using leftover clays). To see the listing on Mueller, please use the in-house search box at the top right of the page.
Let's hope knowledgeable others find this thread and help us out!
