Cheap knock-off of Minton

This crude 11-inch pottery figure, copied from a Minton original, was sold by a reproduction wholesaler with a majolica-type glaze. The new piece was made in China and marked with only a paper label.

This piece weighs almost 5 pounds, about two to three times heavier than the original. There are many areas without any glaze exposing the bare clay. Virtually all original Minton majolica is permanently marked.

Looking down in the vase, the lower third is not glazed.
