This is a lovely little hand thrown, glazed, and painted pottery mug or cup handmade in Austria. It is marked with the maker, but I can't make it all out. This is a pretty light blue glaze with hand painted flowers or floral sprays on each side. It measures 3.75 inches high and 3.25 inches across the widest part. It is in very good clean condition, no chips, no cracks and no crazing. I do not know the glaze composition, so it is sold for decorative use. It is an auction piece...

This is 8.75 inches tall and 4.5 inches across the wides middle section. This piece is marked McCoy USA 619. It is in very good condition, no chips, no cracks and no crazing that I can see. This would look wonderful with a floral arrangement in it.
This is a wonderful old piece of McCoy pottery that is colored from brown to tan on the bottom. It is could be called a pitcher, dipper, ladle, server and used for sauces or syrups. It measures 4 inches high and 6.5 inches from side to handle end, the widest part of the middle is 4.5 inches across. This piece is in good condition for being vintage, no chips, no cracks, but it does have the typical age glaze crazing found in older pieces. This would be a great size for gravies or sauces...
This is a cute little lamb planter with a pink background over white pottery and blue and black lamb with gold gilt accents. I believe it is vintage, but I don't know the age or maker.

It does have a very small and pretty much unoticeable hairline crack on the edge.

These are wonderful old pieces of hand painted pottery. The only damage is the back of one of the antlers has a surface chip, but you can't see it from the front...

This is a really pretty little ewer that I think is made by Cliftwood Pottery Company. It is very similar to a taller version, but this one is 5 and 7/8 inches tall and 3.25 inches across. It is unmarked. There are no cracks, and no chips, It does have a couple of very small manufacturers defects in the glaze and a small amount of wear to the glaze on the base. If it is Cliftwood it is circa 1920 to 1940, but I can't be certain with no mark. It is an auction piece.
