A small jug with BE mark - Benjamin Eeles

Post by Guest on December 4th 2017, 3:50 pm

A sweet little jug. The mark looks like BS, but is rather feint & I may be mistaken.
Any ideas gratefuly received.

Possibly BE for Benjamin Eeles, Shepherds Well pottery, but I'd need to see a better photo of the mark to be sure; this one is out of focus.

Thank you Naomi.
Sorry, but that is a good as I can get with my camera. The mark is very feint to start with and as you can see, I am no David Bailey Happy
Good to have some names to look into, so thanks again.

That runny light blue glaze is found on Eeles family pots, so I think Benjamin is most likely

I think you are spot on Naomi, I found a lovely little mug on ebay with a very similar glaze and identical backstamp. Thank You Happy

Lidded bowl - Simon Eeles

Post by Froggery on August 9th 2018, 4:19 pm




One of the recent finds, I thought it would be an easy one, but apparently not. The seeming “3S” bit might be attributed to Beryl Sutcliff(e) but I can hardly make out the larger and more explicit mark. Asian import…? The frog on a lily pad with flowers around are rather charming. It feels very very heavy considering it is only a small thing.

DE stoneware jug - Probably David Eeles

Post by benwilliams on February 9th 2019, 12:55 pm

Hi, v. Well made stoneware jug, medieval style decoration. Marked DE impressed and unfortunately another mark, chipped, looks gothic, maybe M
12” tall. Hope this is easy to ID. Thanks.

I’m wondering if it’s a very early piece by David Eeles. The second mark could be a well for Shepherd’s Well Pottery

From the Marks book. The Eeles family is one of the few potters to use the zig zag wire cut on the base of their pots

Thank you. I’ve had some Shepherds Well pieces but not like this. I’ll have another look. The DE is close to the one in the book and I know marks are sometimes a little different to how they are shown.
