I have a piece with the marking of Minton without a pattern number. I have been told that it is not a value. Is this true? How could I discover the true value?
I have 4 porcelain plates which are blue bamboo and birds on a white background. The mark on the back in in the porcelain and appears to be a spread winged angel with a serpent winding around the body of the angel. Is this a known mark?
I have a Parian white candle holder top is glazed only blue Crown and two letters with a cross stroke in between, looks like it was hand painted could be D/P. no chips or marks, scallop rim basket design impression around edge. Yes oval basket shape, about 4” tall Any Help Who made it or how old it may be ? Robert.
Additional info to above enquiry, the letters in Blue on closer inspection looks like D / C. Very clumsy looking writing. Thanks.
I have a decorative plate with a raised gold design with bunches of roses and flowers in between. In the middle is a large M in flowers and on top of it an upside down V. The backstamp shows an A and above it a simple crown like design.
Any ideas on what mark it might be so I can research further? Any help is appreciated. Thanks.
