Studio jug with bawdy motto - Mary Wondrausch

Post by Essenjay on March 12th 2017, 9:33 pm

Anyone have any suggestions for the potter, please?

Ochre ground with slip decoration and slightly bawdy motto. Signed 'MV' (?) under handle; the only potter in Yates-Owen & Fournier with the same initials is Marion Valder who might fit location-wise but this jug doesn't really sound like something that she would have done if the description of her work is anything to go by. If nothing else, the motto sounds too 'blokey'. Plus, I would guess - judging by wear and glaze crazing - that this may be older than the 1990s.
