Unmarked slipware dish with Motto

Post by NaomiM on December 4th 2017, 10:35 pm

Dish with motto. Quite a gritty clay.
I've tried matching the handwriting to various slipware potters but so far no luck
Not: Mary Wondrausch, Alsager Pottery, Prue Cooper, Bideford, Weatheriggs, Hannah McAndrew, Jean Hampton...

Its really sweet piece. Can't say by whom but you could probably add Carole Glover to your list of isn'ts above as it doesn't look like her writing either and she is also pretty good at signing her work. You'd think someone would want to sign and take ownership of such a lovely dish especially with the workmanship involved

Yes, Carol Glover's work is great. I have a few of her pieces but they're a bit heavily potted where as this is very well potted so, tbh, I didn't check

Yes I collect her work too. It can be a bit on the heavy side. I'm not convinced its Kirton either. When I first looked at it I did wonder if it was a continental piece due to the gritty bright red of the clay body and the fact it has a clear glaze underneath. I've has some Spanish slipware with similar attributes. The G in the handwriting is possibly the best clue as (unless its a slip of the slip) its quite distinctive

Unfortunately I haven't seen the back of a Kirton plate for comparison. Continental did cross my mind but slipware potters like Peter Leach's Springfield Pottery use quite a coarse rustic clay, and I don't think a Spanish potter would write so well in English unless it was a commission for the expat community
