I'm just shocked they want 20 for something that, for all they know, could be a Chinese import.

Would you be so surprised if they were selling a leach for a fiver ... I agree though naomi... no name a few pounds fine but 20 dont get me wrong there was a teapot as well and they were very well made and worth that all day.. Quality is not enough you want a name...

Maybe someone said 'that looks like a piece of Studio pottery. Do you know that stuff is really collectable."

In our shop a couple of the volunteers keep pricing Jersey Pottery at ridiculously high prices because a customer once said "Do you know the pottery's gone out of business? Those items are really collectable now"

I think Jersey pottery is rather smart I picked up a nice piece for 50 p in a charity shop today... the style which has got the impressed marks... I really like them... And good value...

Jo Lester's IoW figural plates are worth collecting, but not really to my taste.

Regarding the price of the jar, compared to some prices I have seen in local charity shops for "collectable" and/or "studio pottery", it seems very reasonable. I've seen a cracked W German vase (common one) for 50... Shock

Went in to the shop again today, told them I want it, you want to sell it, I will give you 5 for it and another 5 for the teapot .. felt guilty asking for a discount from a charity shop but no name its just not worth any more.... than that... The woman who was in the shop thought it was chinese and mass produced ... I wouldnt imagine that would be the case as it has been very finely potted .... So the end of the story is i got the pair for 10.. Most Excellent

Spotted a teapot with the same design on ebay, attributed to Tony Foarde (I assume they mean Foard). Not his usual work; i don't know if he ever made anything like this early in his career.
