Unmarked stoneware vase

Post by hercules brabazon on January 6th 2015, 12:58 am

I've had this for about ten years and still not a clue who might have made it. It's about 20cm high, stoneware, no makers mark. I've always imagined it might be from the earlier generation of studio potters.

The base reminds me of George Dear, Wales.

It looks very well made and looks to me to be around 50 years old. The lack of a mark might suggest that it wasn't made in the UK, but it could of course originally have had a sticky label with the potter's name and address.

George Dear uses a stamp but sometimes the clay is too dry to take an impression.

Thanks, interesting ideas. The pale mottling is only the flat part of the base; it doesn't seem to be throughout the body as it is in George Dear's work.
