Hull Pottery Wall Pockets Reproduced

Reproduction Hull Pottery wall pockets are in the market. New and old can be separated by the mark on the back. The authentic Hull mark is formed with block style lettering. The new mark is a cursive or script-style lettering. The same new mark also appears on reproduction 10″ orchid pattern vases. Differences are most obvious in the double L's. Script-style marks were used on some Little Red Riding Hood items but never on floral pattern lines.
