Campden Pottery Vase - Edgar Campden?

Post by Sheila Hoyle on January 17th 2017, 4:02 pm

Sheila Hoyle Help
Could anyone help identify this pot
I originally thought this vase was Signed Edgar Campden for Aldermaston Pottery
But not 100% sure now as there is no letter A for Aldermaston
Thanks Frustrated

There is maybe another possibility. From 1963 - 1980 Muriel Tudor Jones ran a pottery in Chipping Campden. The work has an impressed CAMPDEN on it, and sometimes the word Campden in Freehand. While most of her work does not look like this, it could still possibly have been produced there.

Possibly but is the clay right? I think it was mainly terracotta.

I Think EC was still at Aldermaston in 1979.

Thank you all, and it seems everyone is still scratching their head, as I have been. I too looked at the other possibilities and came to a conclusion that the others were terracotta, and this is glazed stoneware I think.

I just thought the way that the C in Camden with the E crossing it looks very much like The EC on other pots signed by Camden but as you say it does not look like the style of Aldermaston.

Geoffrey Eastop worked at Aldermaston and after leaving there his pots changed dramatically over the years, so it's not unreasonable for you to suggest that your vase might be by Edgar Campden but after leaving Aldermaston. The point about the C with the line through it also makes sense.

That doesn't mean that I'm suggesting that your vase is by Edgar Campden because I have no idea. All I know about him is the name and that he worked at Aldermaston. I have no idea if he did anything after or when he stopped working at Aldermaston so would be interested if anyone out there can help.

SP I'm a fan and tend to follow his stuff on EB - bought a set of x6 green goblets last year. Can't remember seeing anything that is not clearly Aldermaston like - white glaze with brushed pattern.

Agree with what you say above.

Thanks for your opinions guys and I will try to find out if EC set up at another pottery after leaving Aldermaston, but research tells me he was still at Aldermaston at least until the 80's. I just have a gut feeling the way the EC is signed that it could still be the man himself, onwards and upwards
