Thanks Dan.
That is a very interesting handle, I've never seen one like that.
It seems to be a mix of both the typical Mousehole one in attachment, but like the Newlyn ones in shape.
So I guess this must be around the transition.
But I can now see the glaze does look to be painted on.
So yeh, I'd say this is late Mousehole.

The Lion design isn't particularly uncommon, but good examples are. Certainly during Newlyn times it tended to look more like a griffin/dragon, than the lion it started out as. It is certainly a design from the very early days, before Celtic Pottery - I've got one with a 'The Studio .....' label.
I'll add a few of mine later

That's one you did beat me to then - I never even saw it!
Was wondering where you found that.
I would have had to think seriously about it, but would probably have made an offer as well.

But I've realised I have seen that handle once before (but only once), I have a very yellow hand made mug with the bird design, with that handle and mine seems to be Mousehole.

This came from ebay last week and cost a folding red one. Sadly missing it's label. Is it Maggie also? To me it looks similar to one of Dan's blue dishes on this thread? But the back is relatively plain without much work. It's very light and thinly thrown - not chunky. Also very uneven, not symmetrical. Heaps of texture and colour and lost of contrasting surfaces, shiny/matt smooth/scraffito etc.

Tile - exactly as Celtic Fan's (yellow 1979) except it's got a date mark for 1973 on the back. A friend mentioned he also had one dated 1972.

Celtic Newlyn jug

Post by vanmann on September 17th 2014, 12:07 pm

Am I right in thinking that this 25 cms tall jug is from Celtic Newlyn and if so what sort of date would it be? Thanks for any suggestions, John

Dear ALL, this is news I really didn't want to breaking, but -
I have just heard the very sad news that Maggi passed away on 9th January 2014, aged 78.

The only mention I can find is this obituary from Canada
http://www.lifenews.ca/announcement/4334702-fisher-maggie-nee-smyth

I've also spoken to a an ebayer, who kindly confirmed that her friend had attended the funeral, which was well attended.

This news has come as such a shock, as she seemed so full of life when I spoke to her last year and 78 is relatively young these days.

I'm sure you will all join me in offer our sincere condolences to her family and friends.

R.I.P. Maggi, May 28th 1935 - January 9th 2014

Celtic Newlin Horse

I quite like the straw coloured Medallion decoration on this horse as it brings out the sculptural form.

There is just no Celtic (decent or not) at fairs etc. So when this came up on ebay I thought it was a good buy. I probably paid too much for it. It's got a mark for 74 on it. Not seen this fish design on a tile before. It had green sticky backed felt on the back that peels back to reveal the gold label. Hopefully we will see more designs on tiles in the future?

Jerry, here it is compared to the other blue tile I posted earlier. Both unmarked blanks. Both have the green backing applied, gold label and are simply marked MADE IN - ENGLAND across the centre. I'm no tile expert, but I think the bottom number is the year and the rows of dots above the month, so they can track faulty batches. Of course there is no guarantee that if it's marked 77 that is was used then it could have stood in some warehouse for a few years before it was used. But this fish tile was not before 74 (probably?) - unless anyone knows more?

They may have got them from the local DIY, with felt on, they were maybe sold
as teapot stands to go with the teapots.

BTW great fish design!

I like that pic' and like how the lovely wood colour and vibrant green background reflect and enhance the beauty of the form of your lovely horse.
