Slipware dish with bird

Post by NaomiM on October 15th 2012, 3:22 pm

Slip decorated dish/bowl with picture of a bird - possibly a peacock - and the date 1617. Modern studio pottery.
Backstamp in the shape of an X with crossed arms (or four 't's in a cross shape).

Same here. I am curious about the 1617. I cannot believe its a random date. Could it be commemorating something? Also what is the boat like object on the left? I have no answers I'm afraid though Naomi.

The only event that has a tentative connection is the birth of Dorothy Spencer (nee Sidney), who became the Countess of Sunderland. Might explain the S at the end of the 'boat'.

Just seen another slipware piece with the impressed cross mark on the base, and on the front it has the cross mark in slip and the motto Moseley Old Hall around it, so I'm assuming that's where the pottery was based.

Moseley Old Hall is an Elizabethan Farmhouse just on the outskirts of Wolverhampton, I'm not aware of any pottery in the area, Paul Gooderham is about the nearest.

Thanks. I don't think it's her style (or Paul's), but maybe a student or contemporary of Jean's.

I wasn't suggesting it was Paul Gooderham but that it was the only pottery I could think of in the area ( I work about 1 mile from Moseley Old Hall). Agree with you on Jean Hampton, definately not her style.

A pot made by the same pottery turned up in an excavation at Basing House, Old Basing. Apparently it was broken and left behind by one of the re-enactment societies (Sealed Knot or similar).
