Sorry to spoil the fun guy's - but this handle isn't on upside down. I have a number of these mousehole mugs & jugs and they all have handles this way up. But it does look as though someone may have been a little heavy handed, as they tend to be rather flatter on the top and not such a slope. If you look at mine below, they all have the large top attachment with the smaller bottom attachment.


On a different matter, is that 'coffin' vase actually Celtic ? I've never seen a Celtic one before and it doesn't 'look' that much like Celtic to me - although it may seem more so on handling and actually seeing the glaze?

oops - it's not a coffin is it, it's square. This looks a similar size to those 3 which have been on ebay at various times - but obviously slightly different at the top.

OK, here are a few of mine.
Lion




Different birds


Frog


Mouslehole mug - recognise the handle !!


Lidded Jar


Sea Horse - Look closely and you will see it's hasn't had final glaze/firing. It is course not glaze smooth and the colours have not been 'brought out' by the firing. I'm not sure why, but another 'un-glazed' to follow.


'un-glazed/fired' fish


Has anyone else got any of these 'un-glazed' ones ??

And finally (for now), a large triangle dish, which has 3 'stud' feet on the base.

Steam trawler tankard

Post by dantheman on August 12th 2011, 1:36 pm


fairly unusual to find a tankard with the trawler decoration and lucky that the seller couldn't tell the difference between a glaze miss and a frit! so I got it cheap Most Excellent

Perhaps from the mousehole site - but there is the 15 in vase (also made as a lamp- I have one) which was done at Newlyn.

Yeh, I know. Just saying - a bigger vase was produced at Newlyn.
But I agree, it the biggest I've seen which can be attributed to Bill.

Agreed, Jilly that's a really nice Bull. Several of the earlier ones seem to be this much darker 'solid' yellow.

Dan - I remember that jug, but can't remember whether you outbid me, or if there was a reason I didn't bid on it - maybe that was one of those items I just forgot about until it was too late - which seems to happen too often these days Frustrated Always nice to have a signed piece Excellent

Post by dantheman on February 13th 2012, 1:35 pm

I was the only bidder in the end so I got it for a snip,plus the chip turned out to be a small bubble in the pewter glaze so no damage whatsoever!! Jumping For Joy

it looks great displayed with 2 other 'Fisher' jugs
