It's Langley Mill.
This is the earliest art pottery, (as opposed to utilitarian wares),
they made c1880, with the remains of a very rare paper label.
The range had no name so collectors simply call it "Blue and brown".

They were never marked at all, and the range was only cofirmed as Langley when
some shards were found during excavation of the pottery site in 1992.
Maybe they all had paper labels... interesting.

My large vase with hops.

Checking in the book, this specific paper label design is unrecorded.
A pity it's not all there, and the writing is indistinct.

Looks like there was a square label headed Langley Art Pottery, and a circular label over the top; maybe a price label?

Well certainly learned something. It is so similar to the competition labels I filled in the gaps. But an unrecorded label by a rare factory I would not have guessed. Think this is one for the reference books as I doubt we will see many more examples.

It's owned by a dealer friend. I said I'd ID it for him.

I think the value is closer to a Martin brothers version than most would suspect. I guess this is top of the tree for Langley collectors so would command a high price. If it was Martin the design would put it bottom end. But of course Martin brothers do have very high prices to start with:shock:

A standard cream jug shape from around 1900-1910.
Not seen one in that glaze with the gilding though.

Gilding was an optional extra, on order, with a comensurate price difference.
