During the 30s John Spencer was a designer for Langley Mill pottery, best known for
his sgraffito wares, usually decorative items but there were also domestic pieces,
usually in a shiny blue, like named storage jars, teapots etc.

He carried on the technique at Pearsons in the 1950s

A very brief resume of some of the wording in the marks that
may be found on Langley Mill pottery.
Info taken from "Langley Mill pottery" ISBN 0 9542250 0 7
by John and Jennifer Giblin.

Even though the pottery was just in Derbyshire, the old border
being defined by the river Erewash, the word "Derbyshire"
never appears in any marks, however "Notts" appears on
and off, on marks up to c1913, so it may have been in the
Nottingham postal area at some time.

19th century.
James Calvert North Shipley pottery Langley Mills (sic)
near Nottingham.

J. Calvert & Son Langley Mill Notts.

Calvert & Lovatt Langley Mill near Nottingham.

The Art pottery Langley Mill Notts.

Langley Ware (many variations).

Lovatt & Lovatt.

Langley English fireproof.

20th century.
Langley Ware (many variations).

Lovatt & Lovatt, Lovatt, Lovatt's (many variations).

L&L Lovique ware.

Stoneware Lovatts England.

Langley combined with a windmill, (several variations).

After the takeover by Denby in 1959, the products could
be marked either as Denby or Langley until closure in 1982.

Yes correct, it is a "daisy ware" tobacco jar, unfortunately missing the lid, and the
brass "spider" clamp, which was often over-tightened, which then cracked the lid.
A lot were made for retail tocacconists, so were unmarked, apart from "england".

The date numbers are beneath the mark, but I can't quite make them out 13?

These fern pots are in a 1911 catalogue. Yours is the "MYRTLE" colourway (gilded).

Although it may look like a shaky hand, it is actually double stamped so 13 is probably a good guess. It's in the local charity shop. Not to my taste so I just took photos

Cheapskate Naomi! 102 years old, but alas, rather common, and not that collectable.

One of a set of 6 stoneware animals, that were sold as a boxed set in 1959,
but never marked.

This caught my eye for both the form and decoration, clean and bright.

This is the larger of the three 126 shape vases, which were used for the "Sycamore"
range designed by Glyn in 1963.
I might have seen something like it before,
not sure exactly what this is though, it could be a trial.

Langley Pottery Green Mottled Vase Old Stamp?

Post by stardust* on June 27th 2016, 6:57 pm

Caught my eye today. I thought this was an interesting vase with an unusual stamp for Langley. I've found a few examples of the stamp on the web, but I can't find this particular vase in this mottled finish, not even on Studio Pots.
Could someone tell me if this is 1930's Langley please?

Yes it is 1930s, just one of those odd glazes from that period.

Zapping some of the idle discourse between Dan and myself, I'm not bothered about,
But I did, for instance, give ID information to Antiquerose's piece on page 1,
and I'm sure also on your pot above.
