A lovely footed bowl from Purbeck hand painted by Sheila Drew, dating from the mid 70's , i think quite pretty in its simplicity.

Just seen this little thread. It is definitely not Poole and nothing to do with Alfred Read.

There was a glaze called Purbeck Grey but it was just one of many and, although it featured in pattern codes (PRP for example - the last P is for Purbeck Grey), there was no range name. And it is not the glaze on this piece in any case.

I think your original thought it correct Naomi, it must be a different (short-lived) pottery in Purbeck.

I've only seen pictures but, yup, RJ it was. Most Excellent

There is a picture of the Poole monogram (small rj) in the Poole book and a picture of the Purbeck monogram (capital RJ) in the "Quiet Virtuoso" book by Rena Jefferson p34. I guess I can't scan those here because of copyright.

A good idea if your selling is buy these smaller types then group them together , I made a very nice profit on this set , individually they don't sell for much , so buy the odd one here and there and Presto , Nice group settings.

Nice early selecection there , but even down in Purbeck land the early bits are just not available and i get around quite a bit.perhaps my collection of later pieces will be good for my grandchildren or perhaps there children as not really sought after at present thats for sure.

Tall stoneware cylinder vase - Purbeck?

Post by NaomiM on July 9th 2013, 7:02 pm

13" tall light grey stoneware cylinder vase with a brown wash on the outside and yellow glaze on the inside.
Wheel turned with hand combed decoration. Unmarked but looks like 1970s Purbeck stoneware to me.
However, I thought their stuff was moulded rather than handworked.

I understand your doubts, Eclectic.
Just measured the remains of the label and it's 22mm x 11mm. although it's the right shape I think it's probably too small to be a Purbeck label.
As for colour, it doesn't have the dark reddish glaze you'd expect. It does however, have the little black spots in the stoneware. And it has the yellow interior that's present on some of the Purbeck vases.
Maybe it's a trial piece? Maybe someone at Purbeck was copying Eddie Goodall's vase shape and put their own decoration on it.

Cheers, Ed.
Spotted this one, which is also different from their usual stuff -
http://www.studiopottery.com/cgi-bin/pp.cgi?item=1864
- Honestly can't think who else would have made mine, so I'm confident it's Purbeck.
