Finding the crown stamp on bottom of vase and checking the authenticity of your pottery
The “crown stamp” on the bottom of the vase is one of the most important things to look for when determining the authenticity of Old Tupton Ware pottery. It is possible to identify a piece of Old Tupton Ware pottery by its official crown stamp.
However, it should be noted that not every Tupton Ware will have the crown stamp, and that the appearance of a crown stamp does not automatically indicate authenticity.
Even so, other details, including the piece’s form, pattern, glaze, and any other signatures or markings, should not be ignored.
- Step 1: First, look for any identifying stamps or marks on the bottom of the vase, eyeglass stand, honey pot etc.
- Step 2: Locate the Tupton Ware stamp, which usually features the name “old Tupton ware hand painted” and a crown icon.
- Step 3: The next step is to make sure the stamp is characteristic of Tupton Ware by comparing it to known authentic stamps.
- Step 4: Check the stamp for any signs of wear or damage, since these might suggest that the item is not authentic.
- Step 5: Find out about the piece’s history and style to make sure it fits with the style and time period of Tupton Ware pottery.
- Step 6: Talk to a qualified appraiser or pottery expert to make sure it is real.
- Step 7: Check the design and hand painted elements with the designs online, as they should be similar
