Remued?

Post by steveoptix on February 8th 2014, 7:22 pm

Hi All!

Stuck on this vase, it has similar look to, I think, Ruskin, although I don't think it is. After much research the closest thing I can find is Remued. It has no base marks and measures 245 mm tall. I would estimate it to be around 1940's maybe a bit earlier or later.

Any suggestions greatly appreciated :-)

Not a company I've come across before, but googling the pottery I can see the similarities, although I didn't find any with the same shape and glaze colour combination so still only a possible maybe.

Found this:

Remued. "PPP", "Remued" and "Pamela" were trade names or marks used by Premier Pottery, established in Preston, a suburb of Melbourne by two Potters, David Dee and Reg Hawkins in 1929.

The company was set up to produce art pottery, unlike other [potteries of the time whose main business was in producing building materials such as bricks and roof tiles, and who produced decorative items as a sideline.

At first the pottery was marketed with the "PPP" marking and the trade name "Remued" was introduced around 1933, and used alongside the "PPP" brand.

The mark "Pamela" was introduced about the same time in an effort to convince customers that the wares marked with the "Pamela" name were created by a studio potter rather than in a factory, but this mark was in use for less than year.

Some 'Remued" and "Pamela" pieces are also marked "Hand Made".

From around 1934 the company was using the "Remued" name exclusively, and this coincided with the death of one of the founders, David Dee, and an introduction of additional capital by the future wife of Reg Hawkins, Noni Deumer, whose surname spelt backwards is "Remued".

Production at the factory continued under Alan Hawkins, with the head potter, Allan James becoming a part owner in the early 1950s.

The business continued through until the end of 1955 when the firm closed.

"Remued" wares are recognisable by their drip-glazes, use of gum leaves and gumnuts for decoration, twig-like handles on jugs, vases and bowls, and applied decoration featuring grapevines, koalas and other animals.

The www.remued.com website was more helpful. Might be one of these, from their early shapes:

It looks like Candy Ware to me that was produced by Candy & Co. at Newton Abbot in Devon from 1882 until it closed in 1991.

They used a large circular ink stamp on the base that could fade in the light so often they appear unmarked.

I think SP is probably right.

Am I seeing things, or is there the sign of a large square stamp at 4 o' clock on the base picture?

Hi Nik, it appears so, I have found examples online of authentic Candy Ware with similar square marks which at first glance would usually concern me. I am 100% confident of the age of this item and I'm pretty experienced of handling various kinds of vintage and antique pottery, but always things to learn in this game. If anyone has any idea what this square label marks signify I'd be very interested to know. I am very confident this isn't a repro item though.
Cheers :-)

Candy Ware

There is an identical glaze and many similar forms on this Candy Ware's specialist's website

If you look at the base photo for this product, which also has the Candy Ware stamp, there is also a square label mark

It might have been a price label possibly put on by the retailer and could have had their logo on it.

I would guess the same, I've now seen enough strong evidence to be confident in saying I strongly believe this is authentic Candy Ware :-)

I feel as certain myself as I can be without handling it that it is too.
