Vase with blue flowers and gold highlights, impressed mark HH or ttt?

Post by NaomiM on June 8th 2012, 5:18 pm

Found this handsome vase recently and haven't been able to id the impressed mark - tbh, not sure what to search on: is it ttt or HH?
Red clay with whitish glaze and handpainted flowers - bluish-black leaves, bright blue petals and gold stamens, with bluish-black and bronzy-gold lustre bands around rim and base.
Base foot hasn't been bevelled round the edge so it's got chipped.

The Merge put climberg64's post at the bottom for some reason (probably driver trouble!), so I've "de-wibbled" the old ID thread, so it all makes sense (hopefully).

Yes, merging always merges in date order so usually needs de-wibbling afterwards to make sense Happy

Her mark is very like that used by Henry Hammond and you do see her work attributed to Henry on occasions - probably because his work fetchs more money!

He only used red earthenware for about year c1950 and their brushwork and colour palette were quite different.

There a similar pot to mine on ebay attributed to a gallery owner, because the gallery's label is on the base. I pm-ed the seller to say it was by Hussey but, although they acknowledged the message, they haven't changed the listing. It's been relisted several times and still hasn't sold.
