It is fully marked, with the NC for Newcomb College in New Orleans, whose pottery was founded in 1894; MHL for the decorator; and “F 75" representing the year it was made, in code, 1901 and the number of the piece. The "X" next to the F 75 indicates that the piece was not for sale, but reserved for the decorator or college.
