Have you looked inside your other pots recently? Cheeky

No, but now I have the urge to do so! Big Laughter

I've got a small rubber duck inside one of my pots... an old memento from my uni days... Shock

Two Friars Pottery beakers I have. Think the shape is known as thistle? I've also seen Leach pottery beakers the same shape. 11.6cm (height)

The early work from there was red earthenware and the mark looks right. You do see this type of thing being touted as being "early Aylesford by David Leach". David was there as a consultant early on and so it is possible that he could have made it but without his personal seal who can say. Colin Pearson would have been responsible for most of the output in those early days.

The decoration looks somewhat amateur, which might point to that having been done by one of the friars. The original idea was that the friars would take over the pottery completely but that never materialised.

Saw a larger version of these with a wavey rim earlier in the week (ie, a vase). Not an aesthetically pleasing design .

Ursula Mommens made vase in a similar shape but perhaps more flared, as she said that it made arranging flowers in them so much easier that more usual shapes.

Very pleased to have found this today, but did have to squint at it for a long time in the low light at the back of the charity shop before seeing the marks.

I don't think even flowers could have saved it.

No, I know the Aylesford vases that you are talking about and it really is that funny edge that is the problem.

Coffee pot with that interesting lid set up. And in real life is much more colourful than my photos portray.
I guess about the same date as the other one on the thread but I've no evidence for that.

I think that studio pottery coffee pots were a mid 1960s to mid 1970s phenomenon. They hardly ever got used and so stopped being made.

I got this at the boot sale Saturday morning meaning to sell it for a handsome profit.
Saturday afternoon, the neighbour invites me round for a drink, so I think I'll try the Aylesford goblet with a bottle of Abbot Ale.....
WHAT A COMBINATION!!!!
Bottled Abbot is sublime at the worst of times but drinking it from this transports you back to the middle ages.
It definitely is not going on ebay until I've worn it out.
A completely new drinking experience and highly recommended.

I love them, but unfortunately not worth much on the secondary market,
