Russell Collins, Hook Norton Pottery

Post by seandux on February 15th 2015, 9:47 am

Hi All.  Found this vase in the North West of England recently.  Good impressed mark at the base that reads either CB or CR (but I could be wrong on both counts and am more than happy to be corrected).  Heavy for its size (almost 850 gms - 1 lb 13 oz) - measures 19.5 cms (7.5 inches) tall and is 12 cms (4.75 inches) in diameter at the base.  I've included an image of the unglazed base so that if anyone knows what material it is (stoneware? etc) they could let me know as I have very little knowledge in identifying what material studio pottery is made from. Thanks

I think it's Russell Collins, Hook Norton.
It may be stoneware; others will know better than me.

I suspect that he has been doing the pattern for many years though, as I recognise that it was his from the pattern before I saw the mark.
