    Bought a crock at an auction!

    I thought I was going to have to tire my arm out bidding but ended up getting it for just under $30!!! I guess nobody seen it till it was too late. I felt like it was a twilight zone episode or something lol.

    Any info is appreciated, I know nothing about it. Also I will be trying to sell it so I am interested in finding a possible value for it.

    Thanks for any any help and for looking.

    I found this, it must be the image we see here. It is the Florntine coat of arms.

    Not sure how that ties in with the date of 1743 on it.

    The Saint Francis of Assisi Church is a Roman Catholic church in Sariaya, Quezon, Philippines. The earthquakes and floods of 1743 destroyed the town and the church and caused the people to transfer to the present site. The present church was built in 1748. I would start your search for similar pottery or iconography (birds and flowers) in Philippine art. Nice find.
