Michael & Wendy Salt, Aislaby Pottery, Pickering, Yorks

Post by Redware on March 6th 2014, 12:48 pm

This is one of my mystery pots, the body looks and feels like porcelain rather that stoneware. I don't know why but the underglaze decoration feels somehow Scandinavian. It is 4 7/8'' (12.5cm) tall. Unfortunately I cannot read the mark, it is impressed at the base and looks like a combination of E, Z and 3 or Greek Σ (sigma) in the circle. Not sure if this is a pottery symbol or individual potter's mark. Any help would be appreciated.

A while ago I noticed this vase with the same mark as a bowl I had been trying to ID. Although my bowl is actually nothing like this, being very simple, undecorated, with a semi-matt oatmeal-like glaze, but same white clay.

Last week on eBay I spotted a vase with the same mark, which also had a gold address label. To confirm I searched the pottery name online and managed to find several other items, all with the same mark and similar labels.

Small Jug With MWS stamped - Michael & Wendy Salt

Post by stardust* on June 5th 2016, 12:19 pm

A lovely jug about 5 inches tall. The stamp was very difficult to see but my close up photo clearly shows it's MWS or SMW...I don't know which way round, but does anyone know this?

it's Michael & Wendy Salt's mark. They used to work up in Pickering, N. Yorkshire.

The Aislaby Pottery impressed monogram is MSW (or WSM) for Michael and Wendy Salt. The monogram is best read upright along the impressed stamp top to bottom. The "S" is an angular letter.I have several Aislaby Pottery items; most are hi-fired stoneware; hand thrown & hand painted. All have the impressed mark, some also have a gold & black label.
