MC Jug - Cardew

Post by 22 Crawford St. on July 29th 2016, 10:37 pm

Is this one right? - I asked SP and he kindly mentioned that it may be a shape from perhaps 1927-30? Got it today and has small chip just above the handle :(  It looks grubby enough to be right?

Anyone have a strong opinion one way or another?

I don't have a problem with it; it does look early. Not come across one in an octagonal shaped stamp but he kept the same font for his C so that looks right. Has a Fishley Holland look to the slip decoration which would also point to it being early.

It's funny you should mention Fishley Holland as the first name I thought of when I noticed the MC is Michael Cardew and he learned to pot with Fishley Holland. A quick google does support that also as the Winchombe mark for Michael is the same as the one in the pic.

A very nice thing and in pretty high demand these days.

Looks right to me anyway.

I'm not an expert on slipware but it does look right to me. My only concern was that it didn't cost as much as I thought it should have done but it is that time of the year.

It wasn't advertised as Cardew, just as as unknown studio pottery jug. I have a bit or two of Finch and Tustin but was a bit concerned - it was as SP say on the a little on the cheap side.

Bargains do happen at this time of year. People seem to turn off the computers and forget to look. My father and I just bought a mountain of 1930's Poole at auction at prices well below what we expected. It's a good time to be hunting.
