  Note: I've been pretty busy lately and haven't been able to respond to pottery identification requests in anything that seems like a timely manner. However, if you would like to send photos of your unidentified pottery, please note the following guidelines:
  • Please include "Pottery Identification" in the subject line of your email so I won't delete it thinking it's spam.
  • Include a photo that best shows the entire size and shape of the piece, a photo of any identifying marks (numbers, USA, maker's marks, etc.), and a photo of the bottom of the piece.
  • The photos are still yours, of course, but by emailing a copy to me you give me permission to post them on my blog so I can publish my answers.
