Lidded dish with wheatear decoration - Jo Berryman

Post by lindylou08 on March 17th 2015, 5:39 pm

Here is a fairly awful photo of a casserole with wheatear decoration. I've attached two images of the mark as I'm not sure which way up it should be!!
Any suggestions gratefully received




   

Thanks

Could possibly be slipware studio pottery by James Brooke, The Pottery, Appleton-le-Moors, YO62 6TE with a smudged impressed apple mark.

More than smudged, I'd say, if that's an apple. Laughter
Mark looks a bit like a J with an 8 in the middle. Might be British or Continental. I've seen some marked TB LAYHAM SUFFOLK, but I don't know if this is one of their marks.

The mark in the first image looks like the torso of a pregnant woman.

Here's a better image of the mark


Thinking it might be a J with a horizontal B I contacted James Burke who kindly replied

Hi,
A bit of a puzzle this one.
I know Dieter's work pretty well, and indeed worked with him for a short while.Your photos are very like his work but the mark is a new one on me.
I would,however, say that the wheat ears are almost as good as his signature.The clay,however, seems well grogged which was not his usual body.
I am still in touch with his wife (Dieter died some few years ago) and she might shed some life on the problem,and I know she would be happy to help
      ......For a very brief time before I used the apple mark, I did sign my work JB
This was around 1960 - 65.


I will contact Dina Kunzemann to see if she has any thoughts

Think this is one of Jo Berryman's marks. Worked at Coldstone in the mid 60's. Other mark is JO
