I don't think so. It looks like the same glaze recipie as that used in the 70s by David Leach and Colin Pearson at The Friars Aylesford Pottery, and by John Leach at Muchelney Pottery. It had a habit of breaking like that.

Here's a Jason Wason vase that's about 20cm tall.

I think Jason was at Leach between 1976 and 1981.

Im afraid these threads are for reference for positively identified Pottery only. If you're unsure then I'll have to move it to Id My Pottery

The glaze pattern doesn't seem to match the two photos so I've separated it from the Leach St Ives thread until the overall shape of the pot can be matched to a Leach standardware format

Leach Christening Mug/Tankard

Post by potterymad62 on July 26th 2017, 5:03 pm

Very nice Leach celadon small mug with a name across the front. Possibly by David Leach. Question! Is it a child's Christening Mug/Tankard?

Very nice Most Excellent Leach St Ives Pottery standardware shape but certainly commissioned as a special present. Might well be for a christening, or a Birthday or anniversary.
I'll merge it with the main Leach St Ives Pottery thread in due course.

Hi NaomiM. Thanks for that and your reply. Yes! that's what thought, possibly a commission piece. Cheers

I just found a post i made in 2008 on another forum, the item appears with this mark, so it's 100% St Ives. Found an uncropped version of the mark too, it matches the pattern...

Well yes, point taken, but we all love to see examples of what maybe the most important studio,
even if they are not the most stunning pieces. Hard enough to find anyway, to wit my meagre collection.

In theory it's meant to be Leach St Ives standard ware and those pieces just with the St Ives mark, with individual potters on separate threads, but it's grown organically rather than logically and would. E difficult to unravel. But it may be possible to copy individual leach potters pots to other threads but that would still leave duplicates on this thread.

Trevor Corser (1938-2015) was one the major continuity links in the St Ives pottery. Starting as an apprentice in 1968, he worked right through at the pottery until 2005,many of those years with Janet Leach. He died in 2015, and there was a studio auction of his work, and a lot has been seen on Ebay in the past year. I was lucky enough to get this one for 4.50 in a second hand shop, even more so, for it personal interpretation of the famous 'Tree of Life', an ongoing Bernard and David Leach motif.24 cms. 9.5 ins

A rare St Ives butter dish. Although in the catalogue, there seem very few of them around. One suspects they got broken more tham most of the range.

An interesting early earthenware motto lidded jar. Probably from around the mid-20's, when the St Ives made this sort of motto ware to sell to visiting tourists. Times were tough!

The base of the above jar. The earthenware clay is a lot lighter than other examples, and the base is not wire cut.
