Stoneware lamp base, but not by Maltby

Post by r-and-f on April 2nd 2017, 2:47 pm

A very neatly-made stoneware lamp base, 8 inches high, with a clear SP mark.

I'm enquiring on behalf of a friend, who has a note signed by John Maltby saying "it is DEFINITELY NOT by me . . . not my glaze or shape or firing".  So Stoneshill Pottery is out of the reckoning.

Any other ideas?

Maybe one of the Australian potteries ?

There's a couple in the US with a similar mark - Robin & Billie Bloom, Earth & Sky Pottery. They sell off Etsy and a number of their flattened vases appear over here, but they also make a range of other pottery.

Thank you Naomi.  I agree the mark looks similar but I managed to find another example by Robin and Billie Bloom on an expired eBay listing and there's a clear E before the SP



So I don't think it's them.
