I really like some Ruskin glazes. Saw a fabulous bright orange drippy Ruskin vase at a car boot recently - it was badly chipped and had a crack but I thought if it was cheap I'd buy it anyway, turn the damage around and display the vase. By cheap I was thinking £20 ish - the seller wanted £250 for it. No ta in that case!

No ,I think £250 was a bit much for a chipped one , this one has no chips ,just some g;aze wear, not to bad as it's almost a hundred years old , 1912.

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
