A little known fact about Holkham Pottery - my brother-in-law worked there around 1970.

Picked up a pair of dark grey Holkham Owl mugs today, from the local RSPCA shop.
They join a Holkham mug which I bought from the same shop last year, which has the CR initials for Cyril Ruffles.

hiya
I have a vase made by Holkham, it is 6" tall by 3" wise. its white with a protruding fish blowing multi-coloured bubbles which get bigger as they go up the vase. I can tell it must have been made after can tell from the back stamp it was made after 1961 but that's all I know so my questions are does any one know if it has a name and who designed and where there other sizes made and were there a lot of them made
thanks in advance

There was a link to a very good article on page 1 on this thread but the article seems to have been deleted from the internet, which is a shame as it might have been of help to you.

A picture of your vase would be more likely to jog memories.

Mim81 wrote:Hi I'm Keith Corrigan's grandaughter. Keith Corrigan set up Holkham Pottery in 1951 with Lady Leicester. I have a lot of information on the pottery, family knowledge from my Mother and her brothers and letters, glazing recipes, patterns/designs, newspaper cuttings etc. So if we can help in any way we would be glad to.  Also if anyone has any Holkham pottery with my Grandfather's initials on the bottom I would be most interested to see it. 'KGC' or 'KC'.  
I have never used a forum before so apologies if I don't do it right!

Hello Mim

This is a long shot, I know but I have a real interest in the Holkham story.

It all started with a single pot I picked up in my local charity shop. I did some research and it wasn't long before I was captivated by the tale. I am intrigued by the circumstances surrounding the inception of pottery at Holkham and the way that a healing process was enabled through creativity.

It is clear that your Grandfather, the Cokes, Cyril Ruffles and all were at the heart of a fantastic story that grew out of the cataclysmic events of 1939-45. I own several pieces by Cyril. Unfortunately i have not had the pleasure of finding a (very rare, I assume) Keith Corrigan - yet.

I am so keen to know more about the story and the pots that were thrown in the early days before the commemorative stuff started to go into production but it is really hard to get any information at all.

Reading your post I know that you could furnish me with all sorts of knowledge on the subject and I am so eager to find it all out.

It's funny; when people see me going for Holkham pots on Ebay they always say: " is it worth loads?" and they will never understand that it's the story that fascinates not the monetary value.

I have major doubts that you will read this message but I write it anyway in hope.

The thing I like about Holkham is the warmth of the glazes. This tea/coffee pot has an inner light which you find on very few pots

I have found this piece which appears to be signed Holkham and initialled JR/JB, all pieces I have seen before have been stamped. This has the Holkham Celtic Band decoration and also I have seen other pieces with the wheat motif. Would anyone have any thoughts on this please John

It isn't the mark used at Holkham during the 1950s and early 1960s so later than that.

Maybe 1970s as the other plate you bought with it.

I think if I remember correctly it is SH, but I cannot remember who SH is and googling did not help me find out either, sorry.

I will try looking again and racking my brain later today.

It's very unusual. Is it marked Holkham, or should I move it into the ID My Pottery forum?

May be best to contact Holkham Hall directly. Lady Leicester ran the pottery until it closed about 8 years ago, but still runs a plaster sculpture reproduction company. Maybe this piece is reproducing one of their marble plaques? Although it looks more 60-70s era.

It definitely feels more 60's - 70's to me too. I have sent an email and some photo's to a lady who works in the archives there. If I find anything out, I'll keep you posted :)

Another Norfolk based item from Holkham pottery. Just for a nano-second I thought it might be a sugar sifter.....

I have various pieces of Holkham  featuring the Celtic Band decoration, I find that I have 3 different monograms and wonder if anyone knows who the potters may be. One is CR which I know is Cyril Ruffles, one is HS/SH and one is R
   

any help appreciated
