Looks like it to me, but no markings or fraction marks always makes me nervous?

I checked it out already and it looks like a match to me.
It's a very unusual shape and I don't think I've ever seen one listed before.
Not a very good photo to attract attention is it?

No, not really. I have asked for new photos, cheeky I know, but would really like to see the base better. It wouldn't be the first time I have taken a gamble when there are no markings, only to discover that they are there, but filled with glaze. Wink

Great to ask for new photos as it's impossible to see what the glaze looks like and 'mottled' doesn't mean a lot .... perhaps it's triple glazed ??

Gracious Me!!! The glaze is absolutely stunning :thud:
The glaze colourings remind me of the 'Ruskin' type ware that Crown Lynn experimented with. I will be watching this closely Suspect
