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'.
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?

Hi Celtic_ Fan,

Thanks for your reply - since making the post I have been advise that these are probably not by the same William Fisher? One is of a horse approx. 30cm x 24cm and the other is of a Japanese warrior (oval shaped approx.17cm x 23cmWe bought the items in an art shop when we were on holiday in Cornwall,in the St Agnes Bay area not at Watchet but the booklet has clearly been issued from the Watchet address. The booklet has three more pages but these are devoted to the history of Terra Cotta. Not sure where this leaves this topic - I have at present unable to make any further inroads to the source of the two items.

Chassyboy.
I can assure you these are most deffinately by the same Bill (William) Fisher.
Whoever told you otherwise doesn't know his work very well (if at all).
I have quite a bit of it myself and loads of photo's, one of which shows a very similar example to your horse.

These ARE by the Bill Fisher of Mousehole. 100%

this mug was designed and made by Bill Fisher in Mousehole , this example has a crudely turned foot which is quite unusual for Fisher vessels

9 cm Posy Vase - Celtic, Newlyn, Medallion

Post by RVsaid on Sat Jun 11, 2016 6:46 pm

Hi

No makers mark and an interesting tapered form and finish on base. The glaze is very D&R like.

Celtic Cornwall used that glaze, but can't say I've seen that shape before.

Thinking about it, It could be a goblet, from a set of 6 that came on a circular
tray with a decanter or jug, in the green medallion pattern.

Think you're right - I was just wandering around ebay and saw this set of Newlyn goblets and tray in the Medallion pattern:
https://www.pinterest.com/pin/175077504243189351/
different patterning but much the same and as you say from a set.

Wharf cottage Mousehole

Post by dantheman on Mon Jul 11, 2016 8:01 pm

I passed by Wharf Cottage last week and was saddened by it's near derelict state with no sign that it was ever used to produce works of art Sad



I asked lots of the villagers about the pottery produced in Mousehole during the 1960's and 70's, sadly all but one seemed disinterested and ignorant of their local heritage,

You could start a facebook page to get a brown plaque made (ceramic of course) - Wouldn't cost much, it could be in the style of mousehole.  I bashed up this image. Not good of course if they are going to demolish it.
