I was just going by the "circle" book that says a 1930s trial piece.

Just checked the "circle" book and see what you mean.

Maybe if you buy pots from a chocolate shop in Bond Street in 1959 they'll tell you anything to make a sale!!!!

I suppose if the one in the Wingfield Digby collection is a prototype it could have been made in the late 1930s but I was told by Bill Marshall that they started to be made on a regular basis in the early 1950s and this continued into the 1960s. There is one similar to the Wingfield Digby one on the cover of the Leach Pottery 1954 catalogue.

Why I have gone for c 1960 for your example is that Bernard's brush decoration on yours lacks the dots of the Wingfield-Digby and the catalogue examples and these tend to be attributed to later in Bernard's life.

OK thanks for the info. Never imagined a design would have had such a long
"production run"

Bernard was more of a decorator than a thrower and as he got older and his throwing became "heavier" he did less and less.

He would have painted a number of the Z bowls as well but I haven't seen any of those signed by him.

Hi, I'm trying to identify the potter for a slab vase, it has the Leach impressed mark and also an impressed mark that looka like M & R? or the R maybe a symbol.
Any clues as to who the potter is?
Thanks

I was lucky to find this on Sunday, or so I thought. I had spent every single penny in my wallet when I spotted this and had to scrounge a quid off a dealer friend to buy it. When I went back to show him, he said "What d'you buy that for? It's horrible!"
It is not the most beautiful plate in the world admittedly but it is a standard ware bread plate and IT'S GOOD ENOUGH FOR ME.

The plate above was part of the Standard Ware range but was discontinued at some point so is not as common as some items from the range.

I have seen it with 4 ramekins/egg bakers that looked similar vintage on top and think that was its original purpose. I imagine that the bread plate term was brought in to try and boost sales.

They were part of the Standard Ware range although the decoration did vary quite considerably over the years - some had copies of Hamada's brushwork. So could have been made by any of the apprentices.

In the 1975 catalogue they were priced at 2 each, so relatively expensive for the size.

A nice couple of 3.5 in porcelain pots by Trevor Corser,
reident potter to 2006. (marks glazed over, so difficult
to photograph).

It is not really correct to call this one of Janet's Bizen-style pots, as typical Bizen ware is unglazed. I know that this vase only has a little glaze but she did make unglazed wares in the Bizen style also. I say style as the type of stoneware she used was not absolutely correct and they weren't wood fired. What she produced were interesting pots and knackered kilns.

I'll dig out an image.

Just had word from Joanna Wason about the large lidded pot above , she told me she hasn't seen anything like it before , she worked with Janet for the last 9 yrs and told me this must have been made in the early 80's or even before she hasn't seen these handles on an upright piece before , she said it's stoneware from John Dobles pit St Agnes which she wedge iron into, the glaze is stone & ash , if anybody can find a similar piece that would be great , Ta Ed
