White pottery with navy writing

Post by Lizzzieb on April 14th 2016, 4:14 pm

Hi

I'm really hoping that some-one can help me identify this pottery.
We bought it from the David Mellor shop in the early 1990s but they have no idea (now) where it came from.
There are no identifying marks, pottery stamp or any clues at all on the jars.
I've posted a picture with two of the pots.
This was also manufactured in completely plain pot too.
Any ideas?
I'd really like to replace one of the items if possible.
Thanks


Liz

Welcome to the Forum Liz and glad that you managed to upload an image.

I think you have given us a difficult one to start with and perhaps contacting David Mellor Designs via email and trying to ask them might be your best option.

However, I might be wrong and a Forum member knows exactly who made them. They are in the correct place for that to happen so let's hope for the best.

Hi

Thanks for your prompt reply.
I've asked David Mellor and they have no idea who made these lovely pots which is why I was hoping that some-one on the forum might know where I could start searching.

All the best

Always useful to see the base, even if there are no marks, if only to rule out various options. They're not pieces I've come across before. Staffordshire potteries is a possibility, but it would be impossible to say which factory. If they were continental, eg Italian, I'd expect them to have Italy written on them to comply with import regulations.
