Q: I have a pottery bowl that is decorated with flowers. It holds about a quart and had the enclosed mark on the bottom; it looks very old. Can you tell me anything about its age and value?

A: This mark was used by T. G. Green & Co. from 1930 to the present. Gresley is located near Burton-on-Trent in England. Your bowl should sell for about $25 to $35.
