Age of Bretby Art Pottery Dish or Jardiniere

Post by AlanH on January 20th 2014, 1:56 pm

Hi folks, just acquired this and trying to date it. Can I assume that as there's no "England" or "Made in England" it's an early piece?
Measures about 9 inches diameter.
Many thanks.



Info from Studio-Pots: I have now been able to find that the shape number 1852 was introduced in 1911 and there is no more information until shape 2326, which was introduced in 1924.

Therefore your bowl shape is post 1911 but I think that it is possible that it is part of their Nerton Ware range, which was a range of glazes brought in in 1920 (with matt versions brought in as well the following year). The glazes were general used separately and the different colours were gold-stone, blue aventurine, green, rose and royal blue. There were also a version where green and yellow glazes were used on the same piece and also a mottled glaze version.

Picked up in a Charity Shop in Barnard Castle. Clanta Ware vase. Didn't know what it was when I bought it but I loved the Secessionist styling.

Bretby. 1930s "Peasant ware".

Post by stardust* on November 4th 2015, 4:22 pm

Approx. 9 inches tall.
Need help with this to give me some clues. I can see 'Hand Made' but the stamp is not clear at all. Does anyone recognise this?

Thirty years ago I would have known immediately but as the memory of this kind of thing fades I can't be certain.

Think it might be Bretby Art Pottery i.e. Tooth & Co. of Woodville.

Denbydump will know for certain I'm sure.

My first thought was Bretby from the shape of the stamp, but I can't read it so can't be sure.

After that big build up you were supposed to disagree. Sad

A pair of Dutch children wall plaques. Despite the Art-nouveau styling of the "frames",
these are in fact from the late 1920s.

Often unmarked, these jardinieres were produced in large numbers, in various
sizes and colourways. This has one of the typical dimpled designs.

"Blossom ware", with an applied sprig of pink flowers, was produced until the mid-1950s,
on bowls, jugs and vases.
Usually no Bretby mark, it has "handmade" and a shape number incised, and
"Made in England" impressed.

Clanta Made in England 2354K cherub terracotta planter - Bretby

Post by thelittlelady on March 26th 2017, 2:23 am

Hi,
I'm trying to find out more about this planter my mum gave me, she acquired it from her aunt years ago and it's been in the garden neglected for years. Markings as per photos, "Clanta Made in England 2354K" with an asterix to the right of these markings. Looks like it's made of terracotta with a black wash painted over it. The photos showing the cherubs are a bit dark, the true colour is as per the markings photo.I have pressure cleaned it a little as I thought it was just an ordinary pot, but it didn't take off a lot of the black. The outside shows cherubs holding long stretches of material intertwined with leaves and fruit? It weighs 5 kg (11 pounds) and stands 25.5cms (10 inches) and it's diameter is 28cms (11 inches). I have tried to find it via Google but have only seen smaller ones weighing 2.5 kg and are glazed. Looking forward to finding out a bit more about it. Thank you.

Clanta was a range produced by the Bretby company. That round disk underneath the number on the base should read Bretby. It would have started off being painted completely black I would suggest. I have certainly seen a fair few painted in that manner. Dating from just after 1900 from the stamp used.
