1960's Lamp Base - Malcolm Small, Wellington Mill Pottery

Post by pots pots pots on October 30th 2013, 1:29 pm

Good afternoon,
Does anybody recognise the impressed pottery or potters marks on this 1960's Pierced Pottery Lamp Base.
There are three impressed marks, one is harder to see than the others but I have done my best to photo them.
Hope somebody can help.
Thank you,
Julian.

Hey Philpot that's a very good suggestion. Just reading online it says her and her husband potted together which would make sense as there are three potters impressed marks on the piece. I will continue with the research, thank you.

To tell you the truth I am not sure if its earthenware or a light stoneware. There is not much of the base showing as there is felt piece glued to the base.

There is a small area I can see and it the grain seems tight like stoneware but the item is not to heavy.

...it could be a guy named Mac (Malcolm) Small. It looks very much like his work... Wellington Mill Pottery, Wellington, Herefordshire.
you probably won't find Mac Small's work documented...he didn't run in those circles...The piece you showed, however looks a lot like Wellington Mill lamps...Just to be clear...I actually worked there in 1977-78...so...although I can't be sure...it is very similar...Interestingly, we also made pots like the Sheila Fournier pieces shown [see Worthpoint link below]...i think cullet was used for the glass pooling....
I really think the lamp is a Wellington Mill Pot (and not a Sheila Fournier....her work was very delicate.)...the one's we made were also circular. It has been almost forty years....but I would bet on it...Mac Small died in the 90s...his partner Rose Thomas sold the mill..

Also this one
