Question: How can you tell if pottery has no markings?

Look at the bottom of your piece of pottery for a design that may indicate the pieces origin, even without the potters name or the factory name. Indentations in the bottom of the piece, allowing it to sit flat, may also be indicative of its origin.

How do you identify ceramic?

Ceramic objects are often identified by their marks. Marks like the Chelsea anchor or the crossed-swords of Meissen are well known (and were often pirated), while the significance of others is uncertain.

How can you tell McCoy pottery?

Look for details! McCoy Pottery is known for their attention to the little things, be it vibrant paint colors or the generous glazing. They also make their pieces very detailed. If a piece looks overly simplistic, or features thin paintwork, it is probably a fake.
