Jug that seems WG, but not sure, with some sgraffito technique

Post by Zijperspace on November 20th 2012, 10:14 am

The jug has scratches from top to bottom. The white dots are also carvings and are showing the white clay it's being made of.
Mark: VS. Nothing more.
I've seen V-markings before with sgraffito-vases, but not on red clay. That makes me doubt it is West German.
Height is 22 cm.







Does someone have an ID for me?

It reminded me of these 2 Sawa vases, marked 347-20, with V-signatures also.



But, the same as your suggestion, it lacks the 'S' after the 'V'.

And I nearly forgot to mention: these 2 are made with red clay.
Is there anything known about signatures of artists (or marking because of a certain reason) with a 'V'?

No, on second thoughts it strikes me as English. Possibly early 20th Century from the Devon or Cornwall region.

yes it looks Cornish to me, Devon studio pottery is mostly red earthenware in my experience

Ruscha & schaeffenacker , used V in description , although Schaeffenacker V5 is a different form , red clay , white clay makes no difference, both were used frequently .
