Charles Vyse (1882 - 1971)

Post by studio-pots on Wed Apr 03, 2013 4:51 pm

Just looking back through the Studio Pottery threads and I realised that there wasn't anything on Charles Vyse, one of the early generation, who produced stoneware in the Chinese tradition from the 1920s to the 1960s. Along with his wife, Nell, he also produced slip-cast figures at their studio in Chelsea, which continue to have a strong following with collectors of that type of thing.

The low bowl with a mottled brown glaze shown below was marked on the foot ring (CV 1930) but this is difficult to make out even if you expand the thumbnail image.

Its a pity really,that Charles Vyse is becoming somewhat forgotten. He was a very talented and wide ranging potter,who produced a lot of excellent work.
Not much of his pottery work seems to come on to the market now,and that which does still seems to be hankering after the prices he fetched in the boom years. His figures are still much in demand tho.
The V&A has a substantial amount of his work.

I've always wanted a Charles Vyse cat.
One day, maybe.

That's a lovely bowl SP. My Charles Vyse is a favourite - lovely lovely glaze effects, different front and back so hard to display, need a mirror behind it. I understand his wife Nell was the glaze chemist, while he threw the vessels. I've also read that the Leach fraternity were rather sniffy about them. Marked 'Vyse 1930'. 4.3cm (height) 12cm (diameter).

Vyse was a friend of Staite Murray, which might explain the "sniffy". Yours a Guildford piece?

I bought mine privately and sold it about a year ago but believe that I was the underbidder on yours!

Never have a problem with anyone bidding more than me - there is always something else another day. It was for re-sale and not keeping.
