These are typical marks from the his Designhuset studio set up after he left Rorstrand.  He didn't throw pots himself but did the designs and oversaw production.  He did some decoration himself but his unique pieces usually have his full signature.

DESIGNHUSET

Post by dantheman on November 14th 2014, 9:10 pm

In 1973 Carl Harry Stålhane left Rörstrand and set up Designhuset (design house) in Lidköping .
Design house was meant to serve as a testing ground for various types of clays and glazes with a close collaboration with Chalmers University.
The design house made ​​a lot of figurines, plain utility and commercial goods, etc but there were also a lot of unique things and official decorations. They were also involved in training and had presentations on manufacturing. In total, about 10 people worked at the company over the years. Ceramic Production shut down in 1988 and the premises became a ceramics academy

Just thought I'd add my bowl, I've just read the thread and found it really informative. Now I know who made it.

I've found there is still some dispute as to whether CHS is his mark. It's not his personal mark, which looks like L over S. And I've been told by a US collector that the CHS marked pieces are by a German company and not Stalhane at all. Needless to say I'm a bit confused.

Over the years I have spoken to many dealers in Swedish studio pottery and all have told me CHS stands for Carl Harry Stalhane

Has this issue been resolved at all because I have splashed £1.50 on this pot which I hope will be worth at least a bit more? It is a very odd little pot but well thrown, beautifully even and finely turned on the lid especially. The decoration is bold and confident and weird. The figures remind me of figures that are on an African bronze that I have at home.

Still not resolved, but we'll continue to keep the marks on this one thread until we know that it's definitely not CH Stalhane

Yeah - I agree with N - Something does not seem right. This piece just seems too funky to be the CHS I know...too sloppy and crude?

So where are we with these pieces?
Maybe not Stalhane, maybe not Swedish even.

Has the "headstocks" logo been positively Id'd?

The proper full signature mark is shown here:

The other simpler marks are shown here: (near bottom of page).

Chalk and cheese, that piece is lovely and base and marks are careful delicate and considered.
IMO the stuff above is still scandi (reindeer on mine) but a different CHS.

DD reading through that excellent link you posted :

Stålhanes art pottery at Designhuset were signed with an “S” beneath a circumflex sign and:

Clearly these are NOT CHS.

Without actually saying so, that is exactly the conclusion I came to.

(apart from Dan's piece)

Another unknown mark and signature. I had a good trawl, but all the
world's stock of these items seem to be here on the forum!
Which may of course point to a UK pottery.

Actually, there are some on a Swedish forum. But, from what I can make out from google translate, no-one there seriously believes they are by Stålhane either.

Yes thanks HB. They are all quite well made pots aren't they?

I wonder from where they were acquired, in Sweden, or on the net?

For that matter the sources of the items on here might even give a clue.

I vaguely recall a Cornish potter putting a tin mine lift pulling gear on their pots. I'm wondering if this is his work

@Crawford street
Does your reindeer bowl share the same mark as other pots on this thread?
I realise it shares the CHS but what about the mark below?
