Based on the photo... there's only a couple in that group that I would consider Bennington type...

Most of them look to me like fancy colored clay....

The difference??

Bennington's have a thick heavy stoneware glaze that shows thin and thick areas and has "eyes" from where marbles touched, or sat in the firing...

Fancy colored clays have a thin sort of glaze that almost looks "waxy." Yes, they may also show thinner and thicker areas of color and some have "eyes." But.... But.... Heck, I can't explain it!!

They're just different!!!! Different clay, different glaze... LOL

PS... Also, I think, if broken open, a Bennington type will have a very white porcelain type of clay base...

The colored clays have a sandy brown, less "hard" clay...
