He's missed off 'Rye', but it is his mark.

Picky I know but the pattern on the Jimmy Elliott jug is "Cottage" and not "Candy".

Candy has all stripes the same width and Cottage has alternate thick and thin stripes. There was a further stripe pattern called "Fairground" which was the same as Cottage but with the thin lines having marks/dots at regular intervals down their length.  Sleep

Wally Cole Rye Pottery

Post by NaomiM on August 25th 2014, 11:19 pm

Couple of Wally Cole pin dishes

From studiopottery.com Rye Pottery page:

After the war the premises were bought by two young sculptors - the brothers Wally and Jack Cole, who renamed the company 'Rye Pottery'. They moved away from the traditional designs and produced high quality majolica in the styles of the fifties. They trained many apprentices, and most of them eventually left to set up their own potteries in Rye. At one time there were no less than eight individual potteries in the tiny town, making it an important centre for the trade.
One of those apprentices [was] David Sharp (b1932-d1993)

Wally got his first art training here in S. E. London with the sculptor/artist, John Skeaping, which was probably where his interest in drawing birds originated.

Skeaping, who was Barbara Hepworth's first husband, was known for his animal drawings and sculpture.

Happy There were also two or three other Cole pin dishes, but just with the usual monochrome bird decoration so I left them.

I assume it's Rye pottery. Is it like any of David Sharp's pieces on here?

If it is the date it will probably have been made by his son, Ben, and decorated by someone else. The JS could be the decorator, Joyce Stewart. Let's wait for a pic.

I just realised how many false assumptions we must have avoided by having Studio Pots as a member, just to let you know how much we appreciate your vast knowledge John Clap

Zogware may refer to the design.
Deserves to be in the David Sharp thread, though, doesn't it?

MM may refer to the year 2000. So possibly a commission to mark the new millennium.

I think it's a commission or gift, so a one off. The writing on the back may be a personal message to whoever received it.
