    Hello my Board Friends - I very much appreciate you folks instructing me in the difference between German and Staffordshire pottery. I would like to follow up if no one minds. I have a tiny basket in white, blues, and gold. I think it's German but it seems to meet some of the qualifications of Staffordshire. The bottom is glazed and there is a ring which does not have quite as much glazing. The basket is 3" across. Any help would be much appreciated.

    My gut feeling is German
    Looks like the little trinket souvenirs.
    Mini baskets.

    Base looks too rough for English.
    The little cookie cutter flowers.
    Gold highlights.

    As I said just a gut reaction.

    I think German also .. the finishing appears to me to be nowhere near the quality of English Staffordshire ... Joy.

    German. It's that cake icing look to it: a bright white hard paste. A true English underglaze blue doesn't wear like that either, and the moulding is fairly crude. Not that we didn't do some cruder bits, but the overall look is German, a little 19th C fairing.

    I didn't even realize that the blue was a cold paint. Thank you all for your patience with me as I try and fill this knowledge gap. You are the best!
