Studio Pottery Identification - Alvingham Pottery

Post by Othnin on April 24th 2018, 4:04 pm

Vase (in shape of a large goblet) 18cm high 14cm diameter 10.5cm diameter at the bottom. Has foilage design around the edge. Has tones of browns and dark brown glaze on the inside. Signature and pottery studio name on the base but hard to distinguish. Potter's first name appears to begin with H and second name appears to begin with G. Pottery name appears to beging with G.
Any information is greatly appreciated.

I canít read the mark but the decoration is typical of Pru Greenís Alvingham Pottery from the 70s

Would definitely agree with the Alvingham and Pru Green. Must have been a very productive period, as there always seems quite a bit of it on the market.

It makes sense it is Pru Green as this fits the potter's signature on the base, however i don't think it is 'Alvingham' as on the base there is a short word that looks like it begins with 'G' and doesn't look like there are enough letters for it to be 'Alvingham:

There are certain things that are decided entirely by the style. This is totally atypical of Alvingham and Pru Green. People buy it and judge it by the style that it is. Equally to be honest, she went on to do an awful lot better (gorgeous?) work at Gwilli pottery.

I just checked our Gwili thread and I agree... do you still own those lidded pots Naomi?

Yes I've had a look at Pru Green's Gwilli pottery and it is a lot more interesting!
