    [​IMG] So I’m not going to make any assumptions as to the material because I still don’t understand the difference between pottery, porcelain, soft/hard paste, but here we have a vanity tray with an incised mark that I haven’t been able to find as of yet! Another one I’ve been trying to identify for a couple of weeks. Any help is appreciated - thankyou!

    I don't know the mark but did look a few places. It can be hard to look when you don't know what it is you're looking at. A paw print? A sword, a tree, the letter T?

    Anyway, it's not the type of item I know much about though others may. Perhaps a photo of the whole base would provide a lead as the way things are made can be helpful.

    Agreed, and I did look a few places too. I even looked for fire and a palm tree lol because I'm not sure what the characters are, but didn't find there. SIS makes for a good point to show the whole bottom. At first I thought it was a typical 50s vanity, but now I think it could be older.

    Thanks for your reply - I know it’s difficult to make out the mark

    I will put up a photo of the whole of the bottom of it :)

    thanks for your help :)!

    Yes, it looks older than 1950s and I think probably not American, not California pottery. It has the "look" of old German soft paste pottery, but this is just my guess. Where (what country) did you get it from? Here is a wiki link about -

    I am not a pottery expert, but other members may be, please wait for others to weigh in..
