Sugar Bowl and Creamer - Pottery Mark raised "J T"- Any Info?
(santa cruz, CA.)
At a recent yard sale, I bought a creamer and sugar bowl w/lid set.
The diameter of each piece is approximately 4 inches, and they stand at about 3" high. The creamer has no handle, just a very simple spout.
The pieces are marked in raised cap letters with a "J" and a "T", or it could be reversed as a "T" and "J".
In addition to this marking, there is also a tiny, white oval with a stamping:"second", but the pieces look to be in perfect condition.
The pieces look manufactured, and resemble the style and quality of HEATH ceramic pieces. The glaze is a matte-finished brown, and the pieces are in excellent condition.
I like these pieces no matter what, but I am very curious about the their value and history.
(sorry, but I am not able to include photos)
