As my post elsewhere might have suggested, I'm not a big lover of lampbases but I like the look of the "lump" above.

The roughness around the base of the vase is especially good too.

Right Ed, been up in the attic. Got the Pearson out. You won't believe how heavy it is,
like a lead ingot. Looks like a house brick from a burned out building 10.5 in high.

Sorry the pix aren't great, did them in a hurry.
No the mark is impressed, exactly like your 2 examples above.

My Colin Pearson Winged Vase Just listed for Sale.

Post by AlanH on February 6th 2016, 3:28 pm

Thoiught you may like to see this one just listed on e**y. Slight chip to edge but easily restored I guess.
Picked it up in a charity shop donkeys years ago. Serious illness necessitates sale but had lots of pleasure looking at it.
Appologies for the promotion!

The form and the unglazed bottom are typical of Colin Pearson's early work, although the glaze isn't typical but not too removed from his standard glazes. The light stoneware body looks the same as he used for several years too.

The mark should have the central line running below the circle and in the images there is a hint of that. In reality do you think it is possible that the bottom of the seal might not have been applied completely?

There's definitely potential for a central line going through the mark which has not been stamped completely. It's clear the outside boundary line of the stamp is not defined along the bottom edge.
It sounds promisingly Colin Pearson from the form and glaze though.

I think everything considered it is most likely to be early period Colin Pearson.

Thanks sp for your help.
Looked at the thread and looks same glaze to me too, thanks for that. Part of a domestic wear range which included your teapot possibly?
It had an enormous cork in the top when I bought it, just took it out for id photos...no idea if that was the original top but it looks aged.

Yes, the cork would be original. He used corks in that way, which is even more proof, if more was needed.
