Large 'muramic' style picture

Post by Alex_s on April 7th 2014, 7:39 am

I'm fairly sure JC had the copyright on the word 'muramic' but I don't know another word for this! It's over a metre long. Coloured felt has been placed behind the houses. Anyone recognise it, or the mark?

Was this at york a few weeks ago? Is there a piece missing at the bottom?
I nearly bought it, Stunning thing. The seller tried to convince me it was
from Cornwall 1970s. Regretted it all the way home but remembered
to look the mark up, with no luck, just in case it was there again.

Ha ha, yes it was at York. Couldn't leave it there, and got it for a nice haggle. I haven't noticed anything missing though, apart from some of the felt behind the doorways. Still no ID and the damn thing's taking up too much room, but I can bring myself to sell it until I know what it is!

I was thinking Scandanavian also, never seen anything else like it.
Hope you ID it and let us know.
I think Hornsea, whose name has since been sold on many times, may hold the rights
to the "muramic" name from 1960s.
Though JC called his later creations "Muramics" they were never on the open market
as such.

The mark isn't in Yates-Owen, and if it was from a Cornish potter I'd expect it to be in there. Some of the houses don't look English, so Scandinavian or German may be a better bet.

No, I only used the words muramic-style because I didn't know how to describe it in the subject header, and also because I though it would attract attention. I don't think it's English. The houses look Norman, or maybe Dutch.
