Lustre Pot - Mike and Barbara Hawkins, Port Isaac Pottery Cornwall

Post by cookiepops on May 12th 2013, 7:55 pm

Picked this up this morning at the car boot and have spent most of the afternoon searching.  Having had pieces before, I immediately thought of Mary Rich also this pot does not have her monogram and is initialled and I can't make the lettering out to be able to go through my book.  Looks like last letter might be an H but who knows  Surrender   Have a mooch on the internet but can't find anything similar.  Any ideas please

Stoneware water jug with matte glazed swan decoration similar to Sir William Nicholson woodblock illustrations,
mhb? monogram seal mark. Thought would be straightforward to id but nothing found so far...

Michael and Barbara Hawkins did pots a lot like this, never seen them use a sprigged seal though, but the monogram could be MHB, so it's possible I think.

Great, thanks, just looked online and yes they are almost identical apart from the mark as you say, and a handle in the shape of a swan's neck and head. Will email Port Isaac Pottery for confirmation.

Yes that's our swan jug!
Can't remember exactly when we would have made it but quite early on in our
career. Maybe 1980s?
It was a very popular design for a while.

Stoneware bowl with swan handles

Post by denbydump on September 4th 2014, 4:29 pm

Stoneware bowl with swan handles 11 in diameter. Unmarked, but could it be Port Isaac?
Came across this post, and there are similarities, but never seen anything quite like it.

Michael and Barbara Hawkins I think?

Edit: I should really read threads before posting Big Laughter
