The Huxfords have this shape on a 9 1/2" Greenbriar vase on p.303. I have never been able to put a name to the glaze on this apparently handthrown vase. Although I don't plan to sell it, any help with value or glaze name would be appreciated. Additionally, what does the "B" on the bottom mean?
I have the Greenbriar vase mentioned and the handles are different.....don't believe it's Weller.

Hello, I've been pondering this pot for a year or more now. I believe I know who threw and glazed it. A fellow named Stoin M. Stoin worked at Dalton-Houghton Pottery where he produced a line of Egyptian styled ware with a similar texture to yours. After Dalton, he worked at Weller where he produced the Nile line (or certainly worked on it). The heavy indented bottom is right for D.H. There is only one, small vanity press catalog for D.H. that I know of. I still think you are correct with Weller attribution, but I'm not an expert. Regards, Fred.

Several years ago a friend of mine said this was a Stoin M. Stoin glaze. He was a Niloak expert where I believe Stoin was also associated. Jim
