Yates-Owen says he's been potting since 1973. The Customs House Gallery in Porthleven just has the occasional one off piece by him so he must be semi-retired by now.

That's What I think as well , But wasn't sure , the style and glaze would appear to be ok for an early piece by him , tenmoku or Jun glaze , decor etc , could point to him , i'll put in the Ad that it may be by him but not sure .

Stoneware house number plaque - GORDON WHITTLE

Post by NaomiM on May 26th 2017, 12:23 am

Stoneware plaque, house number. Sgraffito design.
Any ideas? Unmarked but looks familiar. Maybe the blue plaque people or one of the ex-Aldermaston potters?

Strangely I was looking at some items in a shop yesterday that had the same style decoration as this - the lettering is very familiar. I'm not 100% but I think it was Welsh or Scottish.

Found similar writing style on Anvil Pottery, so Welsh is possible, but my first thought was Scottish because of the stoneware and blue colour, or one of the local ex-Aldermaston potters
