Salt Glazed Cat Pen/Brush Pot

Post by bishbosh on July 31st 2016, 1:01 am

Hi

Can anyone help me with this pot?  I think it's a cat's face.  Seems quite well made and has some sort of signature on the base.

Would appreciate help identifying the signature or a pointer as to country of origin if anyone has any ideas.

Thank you.

I have never seen a salt glazed piece with a base like that?
are you sure?

It's not possible to salt glaze precisely so it isn't salt-glazed. What I mean is that you can't have regular unglazed areas after firing if salt had been added to the kiln.

I'm wondering if it's by one of the Chelsea Pottery potters

Naomi - the inside and base look very clean, not a mark on that tail which looks fragile. I also think he is a water dropper/brush pot. That black lining has been done with some alacrity.
