Quite crude two handled pot - any ideas who produced this type of ware?

Post by bluenote on December 5th 2017, 4:14 pm

A competent but quite crude two handled vessel. Appears to be of red earthenware but you could be forgiven for thinking stoneware if only looking at the rim and handles (which are hand pulled). Glazed on the inside with drips and dribbles on the outside and a possible attemp to glaze the base. Attempt at some incised decoration around the shoulder of the piece. Stands approx 10" high. It was bought in Shropshire and I wondered if it was a Welsh piece. Any thoughts welcome. Thanks

Looks like a piece made for the farmhouse. I've seen those double offset handles before but can't remember where. Might have been when I was looking at provincial French pottery.

Yes thanks Naomi. I'd say its definitely a country piece and the internal glaze suggests it was designed to be liquid proof and used. It was just so crude I had to have it....
