I will post one of my favorite jokes here - you can delete if it's out of place.

Wogan (BBC1 from 1982 until 1992) had Rick Wakeman on as a guest and he slipped into the cover station whilst telling a story that he was in the curry house and blah blah ordered a Chicken Tarka and ...blah blah ....Wogan stops him and says... 'whats a chicken Tarka?'..... 'It's like a Chhicken Tika but 'Otter' comes back Wakeman.

So no one under 45 will get that joke.

If it had been red or half the price I'd have been tempted! :)

"We don't have one of these?"
"I've not seen one of those before?"

Is a very dangerous policy to base you buying on.....

Hi
May be because I live in Sussex I come across a fair amount of Rye etc or just that so much was produced over the years
This vase appears to me to have quite an old mark and I understand the J is Jim Elliott's . What I have great difficulty with is working out the chronology of all the Rye potteries and the potters that worked in them/ owned them , and when !
So I'm hoping someone can tell me the approximate age of the vase




Thanks

And this is Reggie.   17 inches long

Undoubtedly Rye Pottery, presumably designed by David Sharp - I've been told it was bought in the 60s.
BUT I've been unable to find one in blue only beige and blue/ white AND there is no mark as far I can see

Any thoughts?

The RYE ENGLAND printed marks were used from around 1953 until 1970 with or without the additions of MADE IN and POTTERY. I suspect it was just what came to hand.

James (Jimmy) Elliott joined the pottery as a trainee thrower straight from school in 1952 and left to do his National Service in 1956. He didn't return to the pottery or potting after that but became an engineer.

The rhino colours do look "David Sharp" and, if so, would have been made at the David Sharp Pottery in Rye.

Agreed, David Sharp design. I've seen a few of his animals in this colour. I think one had been dated 1957

I would very much doubt animals in this muted colour being produced as early as 1957, as from 1956 to 1964 David Sharp was at the Cinque Port(s) Pottery with George Gray. The animals produced there were more highly decorated using similar "fifties" type decoration to that used at the Rye Pottery. Certainly, I would associated the blue of the rhino with the eponymous pottery started by David in 1964.

Not sure what type of animal this is supposed to be. Hedgehog-like

The Rye mark is 1957-71. The other mark is presumably a thrower's mark,
being impressed, but is not shown in the book.
