One of the most endearing things about these little pieces is when, early in the morning at the boot sale, you come across an item in a crumpled sheet of newspaper at the bottom of a box which nobody else has touched yet. You unwrap just a corner and there is this little owly face looking up at you, almost grateful that someone has come to rescue and to cuddle it, and they are cuddly and I swear all three of these looked grateful.

I  put these two down side-by-side to photograph them and as soon as I looked at them I felt guilty about ..... something, I don't know what, but the two of them looking into my soul stripped it bare, so whoever it was and whatever I did, I'M SORRY.

I suppoe this one can be Farnham too? http://www.20thcenturyforum.com/t16616-green-glazed-pottery-vessel the marks looks really familiar as well as the glaze and quirky shape. The clay on Ed's pot look a bit paler in coulour than typical terracota.
Here I've found some other exapmples of X mark.

I'm glad you posted this redware , the pot base of mine pictured is not Farnham , it's belgian , at the time 3 yrs ago I took it as gospel from the studio pottery site , but they got it wrong , , your pot isn't farnham either , probably belgian as well , farnham did mark pots with an X as did some green Rye pots of the same period .

Thanks for the info guys and apologies for messing here :) The other mark I've found and made me think it's Farnham is here: http://www.farnhampottery.info/marks.htm but I have never handled any Farnham before. I think it's continental too, just thought that the mark can be a solution.

You misjudge me DD. Anything made at the pottery in Wrecclesham is fine by me whenever it was made. Aggrieved

Had a lovely time Thursday afternoon at Farnham Pottery which is currently undergoing restoration (didn't realize its not yet open to the public; oops). Shown around by the owner who'd stepped in at the 11th hour and saved it from developers who were going to turn it into offices. His wife is a potter with West Street Potters which occupies one wing of the building (first photo). He said most wives would have settled for a shed at the bottom of the garden  Laughter




The old front entrance:



The fancy chimney which acted as an advertisment for their tiles



The old toilet block with green Farnham Pottery roofing tiles.




Archway with a Farnham owl



These tiles were the old floor of the kiln, where glaze has puddled round the base of pots during firing. The balustrade is made from old wooden batons used to carry pots/chimneys to the kiln.




One of the back rooms where they've saved the old Farnham wall tiles

It is a walkable distance from Farnham station (trains from Waterloo every 30 minutes) or you could get a cab. Despite its name the pottery is at Quennells Hill, Wrecclesham GU10 4QJ rather than in Farnham.

I suspect that it would be some time before it is open to the public, as when I went around a couple of years ago there is loads of costly work to be done and lack of money. There were also loads of pots, mostly damaged, that had been left since the pottery originally closed in places that weren't really accessible due to the floors being rotten or missing altogether.

You might keep an eye on the website below regarding events and there are some good images there also: -

Also check out West Street Potters page on Facebook. They hold regular pottery courses.
The new owner has done a huge amount of work and is aiming to open by Easter. There are plans for a gallery and thryve converted the internal kiln into a bread oven and plan to sell artisan foods. Also plans to move some of the Farnham pottery from the local museum and from store. Theyd also like to hear from anyone prepared to loan their Farnham Pottery to their display.
