Identifying White McCoy Pottery: Unveiling the Mark

A crucial aspect of collecting white McCoy pottery is proper identification. Here’s how to identify McCoy pottery pieces:

  • Look for the McCoy Pottery mark: Most McCoy pottery features a manufacturer’s mark on the underside. The mark can vary depending on the piece’s age, but it often includes the McCoy name, sometimes accompanied by letters or numbers indicating the mold number, factory location, or date of manufacture. Researching different McCoy pottery marks is essential for accurate identification.
  • Distinguish McCoy from similar pottery: Other pottery companies produced similar white pieces. Familiarize yourself with common characteristics of McCoy pottery to differentiate it from lookalikes.

  • Material and weight: Mccoy pottery is known for its high-quality ceramic construction. Pieces should feel solid and have a smooth finish.
  • Glaze Consistency: The glaze on McCoy pottery is typically smooth and even. Uneven glaze application or visible brushstrokes might indicate a different manufacturer.
