I could quite happily be a Ruskin collector if I didn't already collect the pots from so many other potteries

I am amazed at how close the Cobridge Pottery got so close to imitating Ruskin , which of course was their aim.

the problem was cost, Anita Harris was brought in to produce some designs that could be applied more quickly & cheaply but even her efforts were insufficient and Moorcroft pulled the plug

This is a small simple Ruskin Bowl but rates as one of my favourite pieces.

6" Diameter with a soft lustre of Blues, Browns and Pinks.

Thank you for posting useful information on the Forum, which is most welcome. However, in the Specific Threads, in this case British Pottery, we aim to keep all items produced at a specific pottery under the one thread. We already have a thread for Ruskin Pottery and so someone will need to merge this thread with the earlier Ruskin Pottery thread.

In order to see if there is an earlier thread for anything you wish to post you write say, Ruskin, in the Search box on the right of the page and it will list all previous posts with Ruskin in the title. You would then add your new post to the most appropriate. Many thanks.
