Recently sold this small commemorative plate (about 5 1/4" dia.) from the Llangollen Pottery. Have seen others listed on "a certain auction site", all dated from the 50's. Most seemed to be plainer than this one, lacking the flourish of the contrasting swirl of colour. A nice decorative item.

Were all Llangollen pieces marked? I have been trying to identify this cockerel, which I thought was probably continental until I saw a Llangollen one on ebay. Now I'm not sure. No marks that I can find, and the clay appears to be green.

Thanks
Cat

Yes - spotted that one and, although it is more painted than slip decorated, it prompted me to post on this thread. Mine is 16.5cm approx. I guess it could have been influenced by continental folk art of some sort. Maybe we'll find out!

Well not all Llangollen pieces were marked , but most were, if not a label would be used , sometimes a faint sheeps cradle mark was used as well , your appears to have come from the same mold as the other on the forum , a lot of llangollen was decorated with slip , the base of yours seems to have gone wrong and maybe it was a second or something I don't know .

Rare Llangollen Jonah and the Whale, recently sold on ebay. The seller granted permission for me to copy and post the photos on the forum.

Thanks Naomi - that really helps. Now I'm pretty sure my cockerel is Llangollen, as the whale (nice!) looks to have been made from a similar coloured clay.

I wouldn't have noticed it if it hadn't been for your cockerel. Happy The seller hadn't id-ed it because the backstamp is too faint.

Slipware sugar bowl - Powell Pottery, 1951

Post by lindylou08 on February 12th 2013, 3:19 pm

Hi
Hoping someone(anyone?) can help me with any info on this little slipware bowl marked SIWGR (Welsh for sugar). It's approx 3ins in diameter

           
   

and the incised mark appears to be 2 P's or even 2 swords   Pondering
           

Here's hoping!
Thanks for looking

Everything is pointing me to Llangollen Pottery , formerly Powell Pottery and I would date it around the early 1950's. Ed

Thanks big ed Excellent
Have looked at Llangollen/ Powell pottery posts here on the forum and elsewhere online.
You obviously have (had?) an interest in the pottery. There is mention of an 'incised Powell Pottery' mark - would that be abbreviated to PP ( rather than written in full) or would that be the potter. The only images I've managed to find are for Llangollen marks.
Would it have a value? especially as it's relatively early ( or vintage like me - born ' in the early 50s'!!)

Powell pieces are quire scarce , I believe various incised marks were used , they were quite sought after a few years ago , I haven't been keeping track of the pots for a while so I don't know how many collectors are around but yes it is more valuable than the sheeps cradle marked Llangollen pieces , I know Rhys Powell died, but his wife is still working doing mosaics and stuff if you can find their site and email she might help more , she has helped me in the past , yes good vintage the early 1950's same as me too Happy

Just out of interest I Emailed the pottery and received confirmation that it was indeed made by Jean and her husband, Taffy, as Powell Pottery in 1951
Thanks for the contact info BigEd.

I intend to keep it and use it for its intended purpose although at first I did think SIWGR was an acronym - possibly for a railway Rolling Eyes
