After spotting a similar one on ebay, I'm wondering if someone has made the lid after breaking the original pottery one of that shape.

Just had a message from an Ambleside collector to say that the lid is original. Happy

Ambleside from the 50's and 60's. Those blue tones and lovely sgraffitto.Definitely a collectable of the future. But given the lowly prices,the very Far Future. Big Laughter
The most desirable pieces are those with the Cook signature with the Ambleside. These are much more uncommon.

Feeling a bit inadequate after that gorgeous piece of Oldmagpie's Embarrassed . Anyhow, here's my first ever piece of Amblesde got for 2.99 in an Ilkley charity shop today. 6cm (height)

Studio Stoneware Lampbase - Ambleside.

Post by joethehat on August 20th 2014, 4:45 pm

Hoping someone might know who made this lampbase. It's large and heavy, so likely to be stoneware. The surface is heavily textured with a blue/grey glaze. There is also a white glaze filled square. The brown may be the body clay or rubbed on oxide? The base has a signature and a monogram. Unsure how this has been applied, paint or ink?
Dimensions are approximately 20 inch tall, with a diameter of 15 1/2 inch.
Any info will be most appreciated.

Looks like it says Ambleside, but not a style I've seen before by Ambleside Pottery.

Not George Cook's mark.
Gordon Fox trained at George Cook's Ambleside Pottery from 1959 to 1966 before setting up his own pottery. But I don't know what his mark is.

I know it says Ambleside??

Post by Guest on November 13th 2014, 2:45 pm

It doesn't look like the normal mark, so thought it best to put here and see if it is the same Ambleside pottery as in the Ambleside thread.
Approx' 12" diameter charger.

Thanks Ed, only seen the hand etched ones but I guess this was made by being squashed into a mould.

Hi Denby, could you give me a rough estimation of when it may have been made?

I've found George Cook in the book (cooking the book) Oh dear Embarrassed

But not much info' there.

Would this have been made by George?

I always understood the slipware was more the 50s,
and the sgraffito more the 60s. (closed 1966).

A couple of early slipware dishes, with the "mesh" imprinted back. Not uncommon, but all
unique in their own way.

I rather like those mugs ... the top one sort of reminds me of Henri Rousseau ...

Yay. I missed the date on this item when I saw the photos on ebay. Not only is it signed x2 but there is a 57.
