Hi. This is a pretty pair of vases. How tall are they?

Hi again. Can you tell what that little mark is off to the side of the Made in Belgium stamp?

Ask Your Own Antiques Question

Hmm.. It looks a bit like an M. Offhand I don't know of any Belgian factory using that, but let me see what I can find.

You might be right though

Hi.

It ran it through a program and it looks like a cursive style M to me. I can't find any Belgian factory that used a mark quite like that. I looked through all my mark books and searched the databases but didn't find anything quite like that. That's not entirely uncommon as many of the old factories, especially smaller ones, were never recorded or those records were lost. The M is likely a decorators mark.

.

They're an interesting pair of vases with a relief design featuring white doves and grapes. Unlike most molded pottery pieces, they're background is painted with a color. That's a design that you usually find more with the parian ware style that was popular with English pottery. Wedgwood, Mintons, and Staffordshire all produced pieces like that.

.
In fact, here's one:

.

It's not entirely surprising to find this Staffordshire style in Belgium pottery. During the mid to late 1800s, Belgium actually recruited workers, designers, and even the basic materials and machinery to produce their own pottery. With that, you get the style too.

.

I think you have a pair of Belgium earthenware pottery vases that are based on a Staffordshire style. Judging by the design and the way the bottom looks, they likely date to about the art deco period of the 1920s/1930s.

.
Given their quality, they'll be worth about $50 to $75 for each vase. As a pair, they'd be worth about $100 to $125.

.

If you have any questions, please let me know.
