Favourite "Worthless" Pots.

Post by Potty on April 15th 2013, 11:55 pm

Thought it would be interesting to have a thread for "undesirable" pots that you love anyway.

They need to be pots you really like that have a very low commercial value i.e. if it were listed on ebay at 5 or so you doubt it would get a bid, etc.

Once I've found the picture of mine I'll add them later Happy

I think this was 99p +P&P on ebay years ago, never found out who made it and I'm not sure I ever will.



This is mass produced and I assume from Taiwan or similar, but I like it! Cheeky

Most of my small Moffat Pottery Pots are pretty worthless , mostly only costing around the 20p -50p mark , I went as much as 12 for the bigger signed Gerard Lyons pots but in the main theare as cheap as chips but I still like them .

It is only a little porcelain pot about 5cm diameter and 3cm high but I bought off Ebay in January for 4.50, including p&p, so it fits the bill.



It's by Phyllis Dupuy and sits on a shelf in my office.

Phyllis Dupuy is very under-rated. I have one of her little conical bowls and it's lovely.

Here we go - Fulneck Pottery thingy (missing lid?), got it as part of a 20 lot at local auction house, sold the others but kept this one because of the super glaze colour and the sad story - the Leeds based potter Mollie Hillam, was killed in a traffic accident 3 or 4 years ago and virtually has no presence online or in the literature.

I really like her work, each time I see a piece I like cheap on ebay it always seems to go for far more than I was willing to pay Big Laughter

I've got one nice little pierced vase by her, the walls are very very thin.

Rob is a very talented potter but his work can sell for peanuts atm.

I just love this little pot Jumping For Joy
