Mollie Hillam - Fulneck Pottery - Leeds

Post by Potty on June 9th 2013, 5:51 pm

I don't know much about this female potter, but he has produced some very nice and fine pieces of porcelain.

Here is a very finely thrown and pierced porcelain vase (4.75 inches high) from my collection:



Will try and add a picture of the mark sooner or later, but it just has the word "FULNECK" impressed.

A little more info here:

Here are the Fulneck pieces I have owned and sold on plus one I kept:







I kept this cyclindrical vase because of the lovely mottled glaze. Porcelain. 9.6cm (height)





A bit of hunting on the internet revealed that Mollie was sadly killed in a traffic accident around 1994. BSPM indicated that she was running the pottery in 1978.

My mother was a friend of Mollie Hillam in the 1960's & 70's.
I think she went to Mollie's pottery classes at night school.
Her full name was Mollie Stott Hillamm born 1942. She died in a car crash at the Dawson's Corner roundabout in Pudsey in 1990.
I have a couple of pictures of her in 1967, but can't get then uploaded here.

It's lovely to get some background/biographical info about the pots, Sally.
I've sent you a message in case you'd like help uploading the photos.

A vert talented lady and very underrated. Here is an image of one I acquired at auction six months ago as part of a job lot with a Mary Rogers.
