Customer Question
I have a small...

I have a small pottery basket approx. 4" high with handle and 4" wide rim to rim. The design is rosemal with yellow painted ruffled edging. The bottom is stamped with DRA 941 and hand engraved with MD with the md connected at the M leg. Any clue as to the maker?

Expert's Assistant: I always love having an appraiser look at my stuff. Sometimes its turned out to be surprisingly valuable. Is there anything else the Antiques Appraiser should be aware of?

Hand written with a pen of some sort are the capital initials AT and painted in black are the markings I s I with a sideways A, or what appears to be the markings.
