Could this be Scandinavian? Aldermaston? Sgraffito & wax resist bowl

Post by NaomiM on May 22nd 2012, 8:59 pm

Picked this up at a local jumble sale thinking it was Aldermaston pottery because of the wax resist and sgraffito decoration, but the decoration is too 'fussy' when one includes the splatter as well, and the monogram (dot over capital A) is wrong. Probably not one of their shapes either.
Any suggestions appreciated.

Could this be Scandinavian?

I don't recognise the makers name - hopefully someone out there will. It's very well made and sits really well on a very small foot.

I have one too! :) Never managed to ID it, but your mark is clearer than mine so I'll give it another go.
Btw, no, I don't think it's Scandinavian. Might be an ex-Aldermaston or Llangollen potter.

I think Aldermaston looks promising - Geoffrey Eastop or Jenny Jowett? or perhaps a Alan Caiger-Smith year mark.

I pretty much discounted all of them, I'm afraid.

I've sent the pictures to the Museum of Reading to see if they can offer any insights. They have a huge collection of Aldermaston there.

Since they're by the same potter I've merged the two threads

They are obviously from the same place but the shapes are slightly different and the signatures are too. That suggests a pottery with at least two potters rather than an individual - unless the marks are date related.

Japanese?
