Many thanks Lorrgeno (and your daughter) and SP.
I would never have guessed it was Holland.

Your welcome . I'm going to look again when I'm on my desktop. The images are too small for the iPad. I'm betting the name will pop out now.

I bought this yesterday. It's not my favourite pottery but it was cheap. Is there a way of dating these pots?

Only by the glaze, which puts this in the 1950s/early 1960s period.

I am supposed to be decluttering but couldn't leave this large William Fishley Holland vase in the charity shop.

I say large because it is 20 cm (8 inches) tall and you usually only see small pieces from this period.

Was the Dunster Fishley Holland pottery a production pottery? With a number of high producing potters working in it? Have always wondered,as there has always seemed to be quite a lot of it about,in relative terms. There are 39 items on Ebay at this precise moment for instance.

I believe it was a family business with several of his children potting plus assistants, some of whom set up their own potteries like Yeo, which made very similar pieces.

I believe that Naomi is correct, although there is no indication from the source that I have that George had children who potted. He did have two nephews who do/did but they didn't work at Dunster. His wife Florence most certainly helped in the 7 years that they were there.

You also have to remember that George's father, William, had learnt his trade in the old country potteries where throwing 1000 plant pots in a day was not uncommon so I imagine that that work ethic was passed down.

Always nice to see a bit of E B Fishley. My father has just put a vase by him into Fryer & Brown auction house.

Here is a nice GT Holland vase I came across in a charity shop recently. More Fishy than Fishley :-)

It was nice that the woman who served me had donated it and it had  belonged previously to her parents who had bought it new, she thought in the early 60s.

The date fits, as George was there from 1958 until 1965. Is it a large vase?
