Ed. Sadler, Fremington

Post by hercules brabazon on July 7th 2015, 10:19 pm

Not the most beautiful pot ever: the glaze is uneven in a rather unattractive way, and there's a nasty hairline crack. Still, I thought someone out there might  find it interesting as an example of the work of Ed. Sadler, who, I believe, was a Staffordshire potter who took over the pottery at Fremington when the Fishley-Holland family vacated it. A nice informative incised mark: Ed. Sadler/ Fremington/ N.  Devon/1912. 13.5cm across.

I just read Willliam Fishley Holland's account of "this man from Staffordshire".

WFH was working at the Fremington Pottery when his grandfather, Edwin Beer Fishley, died. Then for about a year he ran the pottery and had agreed with a local farmer that they would buy the pottery to make bricks, tiles, drainpipes etc. for the farm estate. Unfortunately, one of his uncles, who was an executor of Beer Fishley's estate, appears to have been jealous and sold out to Sadler behind WFH's back. Not only that the uncle had told Sadler that WFH would work for him.

Of course William Fishley Holland had other ideas and told Sadler what he could do with his job.

A very nice and very rare thing (even with the hair line). Sadler items don't appear as it is reported that he wasn't in Fremington very long. The style is very CH Brannam or Baron from Barnstable. Not of huge value but an interesting item for collectors of EB Fishley, CH Brannam or an of the Barnstable potteries. Cool thing to pick up.
