Fine cane handle studio teapot - indistinct signature any idea?

Post by mistafix on November 8th 2017, 12:17 am

Hello
Am a newby to the forum and no doubt not quite uploading or communicating well but wanted to float this lovely teapot out there to see if anyone could recognise the mark or distinctive glaze and style.
Has something of Aldermaston going on but no marks on base?
Beautiful quality. Must date to the 1970s.

Hi and welcome to the forum.
The mark is a bit fuzzy, but my first thought was maybe Oldrich Asenbryl.

BTW it's not a tin glaze, and probably stoneware.
A base pic always helps, even unmarked.

Thanks for the thoughts which may explain the connection I felt to Aldermaston. Having had a very brief look online, I wouldn't be at all surprised if you have hit the nail on the head - despite the incorrect glaze description and lack of base image. Great. I picked the pot up in Hereford which is not far from Wales so I may be extremely lucky and not have to keep searching. Much appreciated. M

I've handled a few of Asenbryl's teapots and they have quite a rustic, heavy and slightly unfinished feel to them, so as Denby says, it's very important to post a photo of the base to check the base clay, firing and finish of the piece.

It has a look of Donald Glanville about it.

Fine cane handle studio teapot - additional photograph of base & spout

Post by mistafix on November 12th 2017, 1:28 pm

Still working on the identification on this rather beautiful teapot. Am attracted by the idea that it may be Oldrich Asenbryl. Partly because it seems to have an Aldermaston influence to the glaze motif. I am attaching a picture of the base because I would not describe this teapot as rustic. The potting is very refined. My instinct is that the teapot is not Donald Glanville - the form is too elegant. The spout may help with ID as it is sort of triangular and curled back?
