Unknown potter ubiquitous decoration

Post by lindylou08 on January 8th 2017, 4:00 pm

Hi
This pot is unmarked but the decoration is similar to several potters' work
It has been sitting in a local charity shop for months and obviously hadn't attracted any attention so was reduced to 50p so I spent my pocket money so that I could simply put it on here and see if anyone recognises it  Innocent   !!



     

I am aware that there is what looks like a firing crack running around the neck

Thanks

I agree decoration is similar but I'd rejected Lowerdown as I thought it was bound to have been noticed and bought despite the issue with condition.
Also the leaves or whatever they're meant to be hang down rather than up if you get my meaning!

I think it's Peter Clough, Nantwich Pottery

I see what you mean, Naomi, at least they hang down! also his use of lines around the pot.
Very different to his current porcelain landscape pieces.
Interestingly he originally came from Brighton and I bought it very close to there

Simon Rich's early pieces are similar (he may have apprenticed st Natwich), and another ex-apprentice who set up Warmingham Mill Pottery.

Nobody's memory is as good as Naomi's. Spooky sure enough.
I was aware there were several contenders ... Lowerdown but also Godby, Hague et al

Hague is a good contender, but sure it's any of the others,
Sure I have piece like this somewhere.
Mike Powers even.

Hague used similar colours and clay but not this particular pattern. Powers and Godby used different glaze colours and different design.  The one with blue dots was called Wisteria.

John Davidson at Truro Pottery does very similar stuff and even some Wenford Bridge uses a similar palette.
