    I am new to this site and was hoping someone here could help me with bowl or planter. It is rather large, measuring 16 1/2" across the handles, standing 10 1/2" tall, and the inside is 11 3/4" across. The mark on the bottom tells me it was made by Julius Dressler and also says Austria. It has wonderful colors on it. Can someone here tell me what a piece like this may be worth? I will try to post pictures but sometimes I have a hard time with that. Thanks so much.

    I don't think it's a bowl, but a jardiniere missing the pedestal.

    I kind of thought so too Lauragarnet from the pictures that I have seen so far. Haven't seen this pattern in my research yet. Is there any market for this things without the base?

    I'm sure there's a market, but it would take research, finding exact or similar examples that have sold lately to get a feel for current demand and "sold for" prices realized.

    What is the number on the bottom? Knowing that would simplify searching for the exact same jard.

    Okay, lets see. Above the word Austria is the number 3810 impressed in the bottom. There is also a mark on the bottom that is very small. It looks like three solid lines and above the three lines is another line that has a half circle in the center of it. Hope this helps.

    Okay, let me ask this----Does anyone know a better place to find the value on this piece? I have looked all over and cannot find what this may be worth. Anyone----Anyone-----just push me in the right direction. Thanks.

    Most of these types of jards do not have exact comparables. The individual patterns are just too rare. It is collectible but mostly to collectors of Dressler majolica jardinieres or majolica jardinieres in general. I think the best you will be able to do is search "Julius Dressler majolica jardinieres" and go from there. If you don't find enough Dressler examples search just majolica jardinieres. Find the ones closest to your pattern and price accordingly. You can also search jards with matching pedestals for values but as you only have the jard use about a third of any prices you find. If you wait for an exact match you may very well wait forever. It is a lovely piece.
