Been out helping friends design their kitchen....  One person makes all the decision in that house...it's not Dave.

Dealer friend found this, it's interesting but only small.

the shape,the size,the finish..I think your question should be what is similar to Celtic?

From the look of that crazing Im guessing it's an early Mousehole piece but best to go back though this thread and look for colour matching pieces

Thanks for pointing me to this Dan.

Yeh, I agree - this is a very unusual fish dish.

From the pic's it looks to be 'fluted' and is not a shape I've ever seen before.
There is a large deep 'fruit' bowl, but that has straight(ish) side - not fluted.

The blackened sides is also rather unusual, as sides tend to be decorated or at least with a regular colour.
I've seen one vase with a blacked bottom and a 'dish' with black interior, but nothing like this.

The very flat base also seems to fit with a couple of things I have, believed to be Mousehole.

The colours are also unusual. Celtic Newlyn does seem to have had a period of using odd colours, but Mousehole also did have some varied colours.

From what I can see, I'd also suggest Mousehole production.
A VERY nice dish - that would look good in my collection Cheeky

NICE find Most Excellent

[Ahh, there is a story - I was up at the fair on Sunday and I was talking to a very helpful dealer caller Adrian. "Did you see the little Celtic dish?. No? Well wait here - I'll get it for you." Off he goes for a few minutes leaving me in charge of the stall. I stood there and was wondering what would happen if someone wanted to buy something, then I thought no just watch them. Then I thought I was watching too much, might put buyers off? Anyway I didn't really 'find' it in the true meaning we use in the forum. Credit where credit is due.]

Here's a later Mousehole piece signed by maggi , it seems to be hurriedly painted so I'm guessing production speed and turnover was becoming more important by this stage as Maggi was first and foremost a buisnesswoman

very much doubt it. when i say they are ready for the bin I think that's where they were found. To be honest it would cost more to restore than what they are worth

Celtic Newlyn Mug??

Post by vanmann on May 7th 2015, 10:06 am

I recently bought this mug which I believed to be Celtic Newlyn. I have been unable to find any images with this same design so would be grateful if someone could confirm (or otherwise) the origin of this piece. If this is Celtic is the detailing around the handle commonplace as I have never seen that before, and is there a name for this pattern.
All thoughts much appreciated John

not a design I have seen before but definitely made by Bill or Maggie and I would guess it was made in Mousehole

I would say it was made in Mousehole

Early Bill Fisher, Celtic Pottery

Very pleased to have found these today at Malvern. They are very early Celtic made at Mousehole by Bill Fisher. As rare as 'hens teeth'.

Bill Fisher - The Studio

Post by Chassyboy on June 10th 2015, 4:23 pm

Hi,

Can anyone tell me if the Bill Fisher referred to here is the William Fisher who worked out of The Studio, 25 Swain Street, Watchet?

In the 1970's whilst on holiday in Cornwell I purchased 2 black Terra Cotta wall plaques that came with a booklet attributing them to William Fisher. One is of a horse approx. 30cm x 24cm and the other is of a Japanese warrior (oval shaped approx.17cm x 23cm)I am trying to do some research on these as to their origins and current worth etc.

Any info. regarding this will be much appreciated.

the first 2  images are very small but look very like Bill Fishers work at Mousehole, also the description of his subject matter, Bulls, lions and Unicorns all sculpted in 'terra cotta' and looking heraldic etc all ties in with Bill's Mousehole production.
I'm very excited by your post and will be investigating the Somerset connection

At last - I now know that my ones aren't 'only children'.
These are the first of this 'design' that I've ever seen, other than the 4 sat in my cabinet.

VERY NICE FIND!

Chassyboy - FANTASTIC examples of Bills work (no shadow of a doubt), I'm jealous Clap
I'd love to see more of the booklet.

Like Dan, I've not heard of Bill working from Watchet.
It could just be a coincidence that like the Mousehole site, it's called The Studio - I guess many places could have been.

Do you remember if this Studio, sold only Bill's Work, or did it sell the work of other potters?
I suppose this could just have been another outlet for his work.
Although, we don't actually know much about Bills work and where he worked from, after Maggi moved to Newlyn. We know he did continue and made some lovely stuff, but from where is rather murky. But I'd be very surprised if he moved his work to Watchet.

My money is on this being an outlet for his work.

How many pages does this booklet have?
Yet another thing I now have to try and find Frustrated

Many thanks for showing us these plaques

oh, nearly forgot - what size are these plaques?
