Shelf Pottery

Post by Taylor Thomas on April 6th 2008, 8:14 pm

Does anyone have any information regarding Shelf pottery?

I have one piece and I quite like the style. But I know little about it apart from Shelf is near Halifax (I should know that being a Yorkshire lad!).

Kind regards Taylor

Shelf Pottery the poor mans Troika

Shelf Pottery started as Hippopotamus Pottery and was made in Hipperholme (a few miles from Shelf)

It was started by a Art teacher as a hobby and a way to amuse his kids in the holidays.

People started to want to buy the items , so it branched out into pottery parties, where you go and have two many glasses of cheap wine and wake up the next morning with a bad head and two ugly vases!

It went on to sell to retail shops later on and had to move from their house to a bigger premises, as the husband, wife, kids and mother in law where working flat to keep up with the demand.

The reason I know this is because I was selling some Shelf Pottery a fair a while ago and a lady told me she used to make them.

"Did you used to work there" I asked "No my ex husband started it off" came the reply.

Some great designed early pieces that have not come into there own right yet, just need a style mag to have a few in a photo shoot and Bobs your uncle, still a affordable collector for the future in my opinion.

British Studio Vase with fossil design

Post by scavo on April 12th 2012, 9:30 pm

It kind of reminded me a little of Alan Wallwork on the market today but now I don't think so. Guessing it's Cornish. But which one?


the base has a pad of felt glued to it that I'm considering removing if it will help with the ID.


Questions
1/ do you know what it is?
2/ should I remove the felt pad?

Came across this piece about Shelf Pottery which includes correspondence from the owner, in which he details its beginnings and its dealings with Tremar Pottery and Trequoit Pottery (Louis Hudson), which may be of interest:
