Langley Mill Pottery (Derbyshire)

Post by Pip on February 11th 2008, 6:02 pm

I'm a big fan of the Langley Pottery items that Glyn Colledge designed after the take over by Denby in the late 1950's.  These three vases are all GC designs for Langley and date from the 1960s.

Variation on a theme by Glyn Colledge; also love the contrasting dark grey interior.

I met a lady yesterday who's mother was a friend of Glyn Colledge,she told me that the signed pieces ensure that Glyn had some part in the decorating of that piece,also that he was left handed and would hold the pottery up at head height when painting on the glazes,this may explain his rather erratic signature?

ID help please DENBY style tankard - Denby/Langley "Magnolia"

Post by vanmann on October 30th 2012, 3:38 pm

I bought this today thinking it looked similar to some Glyn Colledge Denby tankards. I am sure it is not from Denby but hoped someone might have an idea of origin, all thoughts appreciated John

Was not a mark I'd seen them use before, but looks like it's this one:

SP wins Cheeky but I'm glad I wrote "possibly a touch earlier." Big Laughter

Lovatts Langley mill tobacco jar, c1920s

Post by Mr Trebus on May 5th 2014, 6:31 pm



Heavy stoneware lidded jar, maybe for tobacco, with vivid blue glazed ground and geometric art deco frieze design.
Printed and impressed Made in England marks to base - no other identifying pottery mark that I can see...A mystery!

"CAMPDEN WARE" (1956/7)
This shapes of this short-lived range were designed by Robert Jefferson during his
short stay at the Langley mill pottery just before he moved on to Poole pottery.
The decoration was by Edward Campden..

RE Big ed's Lovatts vase above

Known as "Windsor green" Introduced in 1937, but made during the 50s.
Also there are blue, yellow and shiny versions.
That mark was used c1940-1950.

This is from the Denby/Langley "Magnolia" range, MA323 Goblet.
Designed by Glyn College 1979.
You may find this range with either factory mark, but they were all made
in white clay at Langley Mill. Unmarked ones I suspect are seconds.

This is "Fern" from a 3 colourway giftware range (others are "Moss" and "Bracken")
Designed by Mike Dobson & Fred Marriot in the late 1970s. Never marked, they
were all made at the Langley Mill pottery for Denby.

RE Bradbuty's post above.

They are from Langley Mill, (1883-1890). The mark is known as the "Langle ware" mark,often hard to read. The numbers etc. are shape/slipcolur/turners/decorators marks. These have had an accident in the firing, so didn't go on to be gilded as mine are.

Hi there....Last post for the day here for me (LOL)

Thought I would post a very, very old piece of LOVATT, LANGLEY MILL POTTERY ( BLOSSOMWARE VASE ) marked.  On Wikipedia it shows it there and states a date of 1923, Pattern Number # 2078.  Gold highlights on it.  I would never guess that this vase is almost (or is) a 100 years old.  

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:LangleyBlossomVases.jpg

...and to think I found this here in Canada....LOL
