A shiny glaze over it marked in the back typically marked on the back with the name of district it was made in. So your choices are we start with the early flow blue which is made around the 1820's and then which is a very popular choice and a lot of people like to collect. Then you have the light blue another choice depending on what you prefer not as expensive to collect. Then we have the Mulberry which is actually made from a mulberry bush the mulberries that crushed in and then used to create this color and there's a wide range from mulberry.
