I got this vase at an auction today. I was told it was a T.J. McCoy and it was an early piece. To me the faint marking looks like a T and a U. Any ideas if it is and what it might be worth?

Answer:

Hi there and thank you for your question! Your jardinere is J.W. McCoy from the Carnelian line produced around 1904. The mark on the bottom is likely a shape number. While we do not give values, many collectors love early pieces and many can be quite desirable. I hope this helps! Happy hunting! Jonathan
