Charming pottery dish marked with a type set P - St Ives?

Post by RVsaid on February 14th 2016, 10:16 am

Hi

Nice piece but I can't track down the P incised mark. I bought it with two Penderleath pieces so could also be from St Ives area.

Polperro Pottery. Sometimes confused with Pickering, but the latter also has a dot

In that "mark book" is shows the Polperro Pottery mark as a different font P to this and with a full stop after it.

Not that I know the answer but is the mark in BSPM incorrect?

They did use earthenware at Polperro so that fits with with dish

It's not in my copy of the BSPM book, but Pickering sells on eBay and their P has the dot.

But both mainly made stoneware, so maybe it's a third pottery? Although there is a terracotta tankard on our Polperro thread

Daniel Salt at Pickering doesn't use red earthenware and makes pots in the Anglo-Oriental tradition, so he's ruled out.

I do only have the 1st edition of BSPM and on 3 occasions it shows it as P.

So you are saying in later editions is has been changed to just P ? If so, then that's fine.

In the first edition of BSPM it has Frank (deceased) and Angie Robinson as running the Polperro Pottery from 1973 making.... domestic & individual pieces in earthenware.

So I'm only going on what is in the 1st edition of BSPM, as I'm not familiar with the Polperro Pottery and what they made.

That forum has loads of information! Much better than all those mark books.

So clearly the 1st edition of BSPM was wrong about Polperro Pottery in a number of respects.

The P on this dish looks the same font as the mark on the pot that the son ID'd and, as they were there from 1966, this might be from the 1960s perhaps? To me it looks from that period stylistically.
