A significant Rancich/Silva little vase with 2 on the base.

Post  Ev on Thu 10 Nov - 11:35

This is a really important little vase as there is a 2 stamped on the base and I'm hoping it is unique to the Rancich/Silva pottery.  I have a photo with 62 stamped on a Glen Afton jug/vase and will compare these side by side at the end of this post.

The vase is only 7cmh and has been painted all over with a cream colour paint then some skilled decorator has painted the two birds onto it.

Base photo .. the number wasn't really visible, but a magnifying glass let me see it and a pencil rubbed over it shows it so the camera could catch it.

Now the Glen Afton 62 to compare the two 2's ...

Do you think they are different enough to use to identify each pottery maker?

Argh. I have been trawling through our pix of Ranchich/Silva/Glen Afton pots and I still don't have any clear thoughts on this numbers issue. Good luck Ev! And aren't those little swallows lovely.
