I'm sure one (or some/all!) of you will be able to help me with identifying this lovely pot. It's 9.5 cm  and the decoration appears to be of sycamore 'wings'

 .....BY TERRY GODBY WHO....WORKED AT LEACH BEFORE WORKING AT EELES POTTERY BEFORE SETTING UP HIS OWN POTTERY COMPANY IN LINCS AND WAS RETIRED NOW.

Sounds promising for those pots, they certainly seem to have an Eeles connection.

Good spot  Most Excellent

Yes, a couple of times I've seen very similar Eeles pots and would have identified these as Eeles if it hadn't been for the mark. Someone else thought they were by an ex-Leach apprentice but seems they got the wrong one.

I'm pretty sure this is by Terry Godby. I bought a few pieces new from a long-gone shop in Enfield that used to sell his work, and have acquired some more second-hand since.

I spotted a jug in the same pattern on the car boot sale last week, and it was marked with a G impressed stamp. there is little info about Terry Godby though.

It wasn't his shop, it was a toy shop that had diversified and stocked various potters. I must have got these there sometime in the late 1980s. Sorry about the terrible photo: it's a plant holder holding a rather temperamental plant I didn't want to move:
Terry Godby - Eeles pottery and own studio  00711

This one has a rather different glaze:
Terry Godby - Eeles pottery and own studio  01010

I've got something with the same pattern as the cheese dish: I got it secondhand, but I seem to remember, or remember remembering, seeing the same decoration on sale in the shop.

Thanks Hercules for posting the photos.
I agree with you the top photo of your plant pot does look very similar.
Hope your plant gets well soon : )

Hi Everyone,

I'm a newbie on the forum, this is my first post.... I'm hoping someone can help me identify this pot I've just purchased.

The stamp is an impressed G I think, any help would be really appreciated,

Thanks Rich

Post by patranne April 14th 2018, 6:28 pm

Have only just found this site. I don't think the last pic is Terry Godby - we have several pieces by him and the colour's wrong, it's too matte and the style of the flower is stiffer.

My husband's ex in-laws used to run the shop Newson's of Enfield, mentioned in earlier posts. It was partly high-class toys and dolls-house items, partly crafts (wooden rocking horses, studio pottery). Terry Godby did retire some years ago; I rang him using an old tel.no. when searching for  replacement dinner plate. He was v gracious (I'd rung at 11 pm, thinking to leave a message on a shop answerphone). He explained that he was retired from potting and that he and his wife now sold furry slippers at craft fairs.
All Terry's work I've seen is either the simplified flower, or the 'sycamore' shape or variant. It's always a slightly shiny speckled greyish background, with brushwork in dark grey and occasional small coppery touches.
Hope this is of interest.

Many thanks for the info. I think I visited your shop in the 80s, but wasn’t collecting pottery at the time.

Hopefully the member will add a photo of the mark, if there is one. Maybe it’s by one of the Eeles family members?

Completely unmarked I'm afraid. I can't swear that it was actually labelled as his work, but I did buy it from Newsons and the pattern is pretty much identical to another jardiniere I bought there in his more usual colours (sorry about the photo - plant still temperamental ).  I do have a dark grey Godby mug somewhere (the first  piece of his I bought), but this  is from a few years later.   The base is wiped clean like all the other Godby pieces I've seen - no trace of wire marks. But on the other hand the clay is rather darker than usual and the painting and throwing rather  less relaxed.

The base of the grey pot:

The design is so similar I think we can say it’s by Terry Godby. He must have been trying out a different glaze
