Sugar Bowl and Creamer - Pottery Mark raised "J T"- Any Info?

by diane
(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)

I had the same problem. My sister figured it out for me. The stamp is for Fabrik ,the design is called agate pass. Ebay had quite a few piece, but recently not that many. My pieces are chocolat, grey and ivory. There are many variations in their designs. Check Replacements.com for photos, but they're expensive.

You're looking at the mark upside-down. It's actually a lower-case "f"

Fabrik was a Seattle company that sold Pottery designed by James McBride and was continued by his wife, Mary Robson. I worked for them in their seconds store in the early 80's. The design you describe is Agate Pass- Chocolately stripes. They also had Tahoma, Ptarmigan and Salishan. Really unique company.

Hello-- I just came across a plate and bowl with the same marks on the bottom. Their design is uneven stripes of chocolate brown, tan and cream. Did you make any headway on finding out the maker? Let me know: jellohomme at gmail. Thanks! Milo
