Handmade or ? - Lacock Pottery

Post by pot-bellied amateur on October 30th 2014, 10:54 am

I think this piece is attractive. But I suspect it is factory-made. What do you think?

(The guy who sold it to me said it looked like Hamada. When I laughed, he joined in.... )

There appears to be a scratched "F' or possibly "TF" on the base. (Or could it be an incomplete "H"?  Laughter )

Looks like a nice studio piece to me.

Decoration and glaze looks very like my Lacock Pottery mug -

It does, doesn't it? Maybe my eye is better than I thought .... I bought it & then got it home & had my doubts.

Not sure that the scratched mark is a mark - maybe just scratches that look like a mark.

I think it looks hand-made but quite difficult to tell from the images with something that hasn't been thrown.

The wax resist decoration does look similar to the Fourniers decoration but difficult to say who might have made it.

It is not the right shape for a Hamada and the decoration isn't something he did but it looks more like one than many pots attributed to him that you see offered for sale.

I'm fairly sure it's right. The base is like Sheila Fournier's cubes, and the decoration and glaze colour is like Lacock Pottery's items.
Although they stamped their items in various ways, some, like my mug, were left blank. Maybe it's a coincidence but the mark on the base could be F for Fournier.

If I saw this on eBay attributed to Lacock Pottery I would have no quibble with it.
