Bulbous vase, copper matte raku - Simon Rich

Post by Essenjay on May 15th 2017, 5:04 pm

I wouldn't normally give this house, or even shed, room but the mark's a bit intriguing  - seems a bit elaborate for something so plain.

Almost like plaster / chalkware, it's white earthenware with a burnished matt exterior (looks to be unglazed) which marks easily and chips even more easily  Rolling Eyes ! Interesting mark on the underside - oval pad with a curly monogram which looks to be SR. The larger vase, pictured, is still intact but the smaller one - which has the clearer mark (also pictured) - became a bit chipped just through holding it.

Probably some foreign tat (not to say that we don't produce plenty of our own tat, of course) but any opinion would be welcome. Unless it's anything special it'll be going into the charity shop box - up to five banana boxes at the moment, the result of buying cheap auction lots for the odd item or two.

Copper matt fumed surface. Sadly the colour never stays fresh for long

Thanks, Naomi, fount of knowledge as usual. Perhaps too good to offload to the charity shop - they'd almost certainly sell it for 20p anyway!
