Q: Can you help me identify this ceramic pot? It's about 9 inches tall and has a faint mark of an eagle inside a circle on the bottom. It says “semi-vitreous porcelain around the outside of the circle and “K.T. & K. Co.” below it.


A: This looks like a chamber pot, part of a wash set used in the late 1800s and early 1900s before indoor plumbing became common. It was made by Knowles, Taylor & Knowles. The company was in business in East Liverpool, Ohio, from 1870 to 1929. This mark was used before 1904. You can find more information about KTK or Knowles, Taylor & Knowles, as well as marks, by searching on our website, Kovels.com.
