Yes it is and the decoration is distinctive as well so don't really need the marks.

It's one of Owen Thorpe's marks - probably from the 1970s/1980s.

Just checked back to say I'd found this one as Priestweston Pottery 1975-81, Owen Thorpe, but you have already beaten me, thanks SP

Owen Thorpe, Churchstoke Pottery - mystery JH mark

Post by Sjtf73 on March 18th 2014, 9:04 pm

Hi, I found these three jugs (looks like a milk jug and two creamers) in a thrift shop in Glasgow. I'm sure they aren't worth anything but I'd really like to identify them.
I have searched for literally weeks for the markings but have got nowhere.
Any help would be welcome.

I think the JH is John Harlow. CP may be Chedzoy Pottery. TO may be a colleague. Thomas Owen?

I think that they are from the Churchstoke Pottery in Powys and the OT is Owen Thorpe. I don't know who the JH is.

Thorpe was there from 1981 to 2000 but I think that the pottery might still be active.

I think these are from the early 1980s and, although Thorpe later worked alone, at that time he had an assistant.

Oops, yes, Owen Thorpe. He made/makes? similar jugs at Priestweston Pottery.

Moved to Priestweston, Shropshire in 1975 to Churchstoke, Powys in 1980 and back to Priestweston in 2000

Many thanks for all your help. I have now searched for the JH in relation to the pottery and Owen Thorpe but can't find any further information. If I do locate the artist I will be back with the info.
Thanks again Happy

There's a contact email on Owen Thorpe's website, so worth asking him directly.
