John & Jude Jelfs, Bourton on the Water

Post by Waretigo on January 10th 2010, 10:20 am

Living near the Cotwolds, I often pick up local studio pottery. Here is another 50p  carboot item-a fantastic looking large jug with wax-resist pattern. Research shows that it is by John Jelfs and based on the "Swan" stamp it dates from the mid-late 1970s. Later pots are stamped "Bourton-on-the-Water" He is still very active and exhibits stuff along with his wife Jude. http://www.cotswoldpottery.co.uk/

Unknown Studio Pottery Vase

Post by Marcusborra on November 21st 2013, 9:10 pm

Please help me to ID this studio pottery with a clear impressed seal mark. Unsure which way up the mark should be read.
The same branch and leaf decoration is painted on opposite sides.
Height 20cm

Looks like one of their Bourton-on-the-Water designs with apples. One of their tableware ranges
