Are these John Maltby?

Post by debbie32 on March 20th 2016, 9:09 am

Hi - I have these two pieces that i have had listed to sell but wanted to ask for confirmations as the horse with riders is stamped stoneshill pottery - which i cant find on any other pieces he has made, and the other has no markings at all.  A chap emailed me, a friend of john Maltbys, and said that he only ever hand signed / stamped pieces that were for sale, that those that were unsigned were made as gifts.  Any way i have put photos below and any comments would be welcome.

I've been told that too on a little lidded box which Maltby homaelf IDed, so I think I know who made that comment. A keen collector, but of Maltby's later work. Im sure I've seen another very early John Maltby from this time; I'll chase it up.
Unfortunately the thumbnails aren't opening. If you repost I'll show them to another collector.

I think they are from the same period as this one on the Maltby thread

yes the colours are the same as the piece I posted but it's closer to his present style so would be far more desirable

If it's the same person I'm thinking of, then they sell on ebay and make many dubious attributions themselves Excellent

No point in keeping things like this in a cupboard. Let the world see them. Innocent

No reply so far, but I'm don't really think there is any question that they're not by Maltby. His early Stonehill pottery isn't as popular as his later work or his later figures. More curiosity value.

Thanks for all of your comments people. When I first got them i thought they were ethnic sculptures and then saw the back stamp - I would never have placed these as J.M as ive never seen anything quite like them before.
