St Neots Pottery Vase

Post by vizibell on February 10th 2011, 10:17 pm

This beautiful ribbed stoneware vase is marked on the underside St Neots Pottery. Investigations on the Web indicate St Neots is in Cambridgeshire but no reference to a Pottery. Eventually I came across St Neot located in the Liskeard area of Cornwall that did have a Pottery. An extensive search has revealed only a couple of teapots which bear no resemblance to my vase.
The vase is 16cm tall and 9cm dia. at the top. In my opinion this pot has been made by an accomplished potter. Does the style and leafy design (in blue grey) ring any bells? Do you agree it is Cornish pottery?

Does that mean the pottery no longer exists and hasn't been in existence since the reference book was produced? The pot shown was done by a competent hand, don't you agree? Perhaps someone will see my postiing and remember St Neots pottery.

the book lists potteries no longer in existance,it also covers some recent potteries set up in the past 10 years and I think your pot will pre-date that so I guess St Neots was just overlooked

I have done more investigation today and the Digital Museum of Cornish Ceramics lists St Neot pottery but there is no backstamp or info. I have emailed the curator@cornishceramics.com and hope I receive a reply. Have you ever visited this site? V

ps did you see my sketch of the mark on my so-called Colin Kellam dimpled pot?

Thanks bonny lads. I've actually received a response this morning from John Mole (Curator, Digital Museum of Cornish Ceramics) who has asked for pics to add to his database - I have been happy to oblige. May receive some feedback from that source. V

Found a large St Neots Pottery vase today.
This one has an impressed mark, unfortunately too shallow to photograph clearly.

There is a St Neot, Cornwall, and a St Neots Cambridgeshire. I'd assume this vase and the one at the top of the thread are from Cambridgeshire, not Cornwall.

Are they the same pottery, or do we have 3 different potteries here? - one or two in Cambridgeshire, and one in Cornwall?

It looks like at least 2 Naomi, but with distinct different spelling.
1 mark for St Neot pottery in Cornwall, and 2 different marks for
a St Neots pottery (Cambs), but likely from the same pottery,
I hope I've at least nailed the Cornish one now anyway.

I haven't been to St Neot for a couple of years or so. I found a sign pointing to a pottery but when I asked someone they said it no longer exists.

Useless information:

  • it is a lovely village
    it has some spectcularly old stained glass in the church
    my pedantic Cornish friend always insists on pronouncing it St "Neat"
