Tree trunk with Ivy Vase
Elaborate Pot Mark on Tree Trunk & Ivy Vase
Elaborate Pot Mark on Tree Trunk & Ivy Vase:- Bought this small pottery tree trunk with ivy vase for .30. It seems to be made of brown clay by hand with matte gray and brown molding to appear like bark graining and shiny green glaze ivy leaves and brown vine.
It has an interesting 3/4" applied stamp on the bottom...cream colored with a crown over a shield over two overlapping circles(could be globes). There are two eagles(?), included in the stamp, one on each side. Each bird has a head facing out, a wing, body and feet holding a banner(I think)
I keep thinking that the pot isn't much but someone went to a lot of trouble with the stamp.
Thanking you all in advance

I really can't see the mark very well. Both of you have the advantage of having the item in front of you, of course.
Without that information, I can't make a comment right at the moment, but will think about this query and come back with a further comment later.
However, someone might happen upon this thread who knows these type of wares. Very curious they are indeed! :-)
I myself am fascinated.
