Farnham or Belgium?

Post by NaomiM on April 21st 2017, 1:49 am

Glaze seems a bit thin and the clay a bit soft for Belgium pottery. Unmarked.

It's not any version of Farnham I have seen. The clay is unlike any Farnham I have handled, the colours are also wrong. It shouts Belgium or from a close region that side of the Channel. The Dutch did make some very fine art pottery in the first part of the 20th century and I would not discount them as a source for your pot.

It is enlightening to juxtapose "Fine Art" to "Modern Art"

Pretty certain it's the Belgian stuff, Blue/green/brown. Maybe a bit over-fired,
so a little paler, but those art-nouveau motifs are typical.

It's bugging me that I've seen that yellow/blue glaze recently...
