I have a Royal Porcelain pitcher produced at Maddock's

Customer Question

I have a Royal Porcelain pitcher produced at Maddock's Lamberton Works. It has a handle shaped like none other that I have seen. I have not been able to identify the flower on the outside. On the bottom is what looks like a signature: 7.DNiLE, or something like that. This pitcher was given to us by a friend. Any idea what I might have?

This is a pitcher made by the Maddock Potteries of Trenton, New Jersey. This particular mark dates the piece to circa 1910. It has a transfer design of wild roses (not hand painted) and sponged gold paint highlights. They did not have pattern names for their china, but did use numbers on some pieces. They mostly made chamber sets and platters, this piece being a water pitcher. It would have a current value of $20.00 as this type of pottery does not have a large collectible antique following.
