I've recently acquired this piece which, according to some research I've done on the Internet, is named "McCoy Pink Brocade Spatter or Spackle". Or "Brocade McCoy planter". I would like to know whether it's a real McCoy or a fake? I have seen a Pink Spackle on your site but the base is black not a natural color. ?

Answer:

This is a console dish from the Brocade line of McCoy. It is genuine and was made in 1956. There are other shapes in this line and they were also made in different color combinations. The best way to currently check values is to look on ebay for the "Sold" items and see what items sell for in that line.
