Can someone help with this studio pottery vase please

Post by seandux on August 24th 2014, 9:50 am

Hi All.

Can someone help identify this studio pottery vase please.

Found in West Yorkshire (Huddersfield to be precise) it measures 16 cms tall x 18 cms wide x 5 cms deep and weighs 900 gms.

There is an impressed mark on the base and what could be the number 02 (?)

Any help would be much appreciated.

Hi All. Not sure if this helps, but looking more closely at the impressed mark I'm almost certain that it's 2 letters inter-twinned - looking one way it could either be CP or GP, turning the vase over it could be either DG or DQ. Does that help anyone?

It's a very interesting piece, but not a mark I've seen before. It might be dh or cp or cjp. If it didn't have the little tail I'd have said cp for Cooper Pottery.

I would say Cooper Pottery. Hope you don't mind, I have saved your pictures with the marks and rotated the image. My Cooper Pottery Hedgehog & mark, looks good to me.

Except that Cooper Pottery doesn't have the tail on the P or the circular stamp.

Anyone know any potters from Cooper Pottery? I could try and find examples of their work to see if anything matches.

It's definitely not Cooper Pottery. Sorry, I should have double checked before mentioning it.

Looks more like Gordon Plahn's mark. But I don't think it's his style of pot at all.

I found this in Huddersfield. Chris Jenkins lives in Huddersfield. Coincidence?

I can't believe that it is not just the twentieth pot that someone has made.

The images don't really help, as you can't really judge the proportions but the line decoration in the second image is so wrong that it can't really have been done and left by anyone who had any great experience. It would have looked much better without it.

The mark does perhaps suggest otherwise as does the firing (i.e. it doesn't look to be electric fired) but it could have been fired with other pots in a gas or wood fired kiln with the help of a professional.

Hi. †Don't know if this helps at all but here are two scanned images of the base. †The first is fairly close to the actual colour of the base. †The second I've enhanced slightly to give a better look at the mark. †Looking at the 'numbers' I'm not sure - they could be ZO, Z0, 20, OZ, 02 etc etc etc. †I'm also fairly sure the other mark pointed out is an impressed number/mark/letter but I'm afraid I can't get it to show up any better in any photo or scan that I've been able to do - your guess is as good as mine.

Mark might be JO or OJ
Reminds me of the pots I collect with the unknown flower mark, so it might not be a student piece.

Hi All. †Thanks for all the help but I think we can conclude that there are suspicions of who perhaps made this, but as opinions have ranged from; home potter, student, professional, Chris Jenkins, Gordon Plahn I think it's safest to say unknown potter. †Just to let you know I have decided not to keep but to list on ebay as an auction under the heading - Unknown Potter' at a starting price of £5 (I only paid £2.50 and want to cover my costs). †Again thanks for all the help, its been really good to join this forum and I'm looking forward to joining in again. †Regards Sean

Looking back through past ID posts, I think I've found something with the same mark (Unidentified, unfortunately) -
