SLIPWARE PLATE - possibly Guernsey Pottery

Post by olipayton on November 25th 2017, 12:21 pm

Hi everyone. I picked this up the other day a nice dish with a fish design. The back is quite distinctive as it red clay over painted in brown. We are pretty sure the lower word is POTTERY - any direction signals would be appreciated

I think it's either Guernsey or Nairn Pottery. They have very similar backs etc.

Have you tried pressing blue tac into the impressed mark to see if it comes out any clearer on the blue tac

Hi Thank you for your replies, the mark is pretty well obscured but I did think it began with a G.
Being a novice to this very enjoyable and equally frustrating game of hide the pottery, I had nt come across this type of Guernsey ware before. I associated the island with pottery cows and butter dishes!
