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.

Zip - grab everything you see online with Evernote (PC/iPhone/Android) - it's free! Photos can be so useful and if you have a smartphone then you can check them out on the move or from the pc.

It's very quiet round here so I'll post my favorite piece from last years collecting. It's quite a humble pot by George Cook / Ambleside. Not the normal type of stark decoration this one relies on form and texture alone with a flick or two of brush (finger?) decoration. It's very tactile and easy to pick up with a very slim neck and the rough banded body.

Unusually it holds my attention more that I thought it would and it's changed my opinion of 'country' pottery.

There are remnants of  wasps inside which adds to the charm, it's probably lain discarded in some loft or shed for many a year.

The last photos demonstrate the best way of base taking base photos. Hold under a table lamp (IMO)

1) Use lots of light = fast shutter speed = crips photos, not fuzzy
2) Oblique side light brings out the marks
