No, but my pareidolia kicked in and it looks like a cheery face.

Might I ask the reason why you ask?

It was a symbol on the bottom of an old piece of pottery, struck me as strange.

How old?

DO you have a picture?

Where did you find it?

Then it could upside down or either ways sideways.

Shadowsot's right, context is everything. :)

I do not have it. I was at an antique shop. I chose buying a cheaper cup and saucer set over it (I collect china, and my funds were a few dollars short of purchasing it) It APPEARED to be an older piece, but I can not be certain. It was a bowl, probably about 10 inches across. Fairly certain it was milk glass. I love researching symbols and whatnot, so I pulled a pen and a napkin out of my purse and scribbled it down.

If it's glass, it's probably not terribly old. Other than that, with it being at an antique store there's a lot of context that'll be missing, so without knowing much about glassware I can't help much.

Might want to see if you can find a forum for antiquities or glass dealers and see what you can find.

Might want to look up the major milk glass dealers and see what they use as a label.

Looks like a stylized T and L to me. With the T on top and the L to the bottom left.

Hi;

What colour is your bowl? Milk glass is usually opaque and Ive seen it in white, pale blue, pale green and swirled combinations of these colours. Its not particularly fine, usually cast/molded, mass production glass though some are nice quality. Fenton, a US manufacturer usually marked their wares with their name in an oval.

Looking at the mark youve provided I would suspect the bowl may not be milk glass...most of it is unmarked..

Cheers and good luck
