This tile comes to us from Jean at FiestaJean@aol.com. "I have a 6x6 tile by Ursula Jepson Hemingway in the rookwood blue with an arts and craft look, made by the sister of Ernest Hemingway, she died in the 1960's. Would the members help me with any feedback on this tile."

Here is a mystery piece that I would appreciate having posted for members feedback.
It is 5.75 inches high. Inside rim diameter is 2.5 inches Shoulder diameter close to 5 inches Base diameter 2.5 inches. Glaze a soft teal or blue, quite similar to Hampshire blue but base is not close to Hampshire.
(05/26/06) The glaze looks very much like Glidden Pottery. The mottled color is very much like the popular Glidden used on the I Love Lucy show of the 60's.

I had a piece of Glidden on my website.
Below is my mystery piece that I "believe" is American, but not sure. Any help from the Association would be appreciated. I've looked for anything similar in mark or design to no avail.
This piece measures 15.5" high and is 7.75" handle to handle with a bottom diameter of 4.75". It weighs a hefty 5.3 lbs! The big iris is handpainted raised detail as are the dots. Tis a mystery to me.
