Ewenny Potteries

Post by heygarth54 on August 12th 2010, 4:32 pm


Bought several items today including this Ewenny Pottery Jug, it is 4in tall.  I was wandering is it possible to date pottery like this or is it just a matter of trawling through the design catalogues and finding out the years a particular designer worked at the factory.

Ewenny

Post by big ed on October 6th 2012, 11:51 am


At the start of the C19th a man called Evan Jenkins married Mary daughter of John Morgan and thus started the Jenkins Dynasty.The family at this time they would have been making pots for the kitchen, agricultural use, flowerpots and commissions like puzzle jugs and wassail bowls. The industrial revolution rolled on and Ewenny became a hub of small potteries, there were twelve in the village and three in the surrounding area starting up and closing down due to the decline in demand due to tin ware and cheap mass-produced china

Horace Elliot was an extraordinary man by all accounts , a london art entrepreneur he had dealings with Brannam & Denby and visited the ewenny pottery annualy from 180-1913 , his pots can be very valuable .

Looking at the glaze colour, the clay body colour and the shape I would suggest 1920s/30s. I would be surprised if it was later than that.

Particularly like the green glaze and waisted form on this one. Comparatively recent, I imagine. One of a pair.

"Vale" was the name given to the former Claypits Pottery at Ewenny following its takeover by Reg Southcliffe of the Creigiau Pottery in 1962. This straight-sided bowl seems to use the same kind of greyish glaze employed - on rather different shapes - at Creigiau. Blue interior. Incised mark to base "Vale Ewenny Wales".
