It's an underglaze mark, so it's fine in my opinion, though DL may have only been the decorator, but this is no different from many of BL's later pots.

Stoneware Oil bottle. Is this just a piece of standard ware?

At Lowerdown David didn't have a complete range of Standard Ware per se and he would have made the same items with both his personal seal, as seen here, and the Lowerdown Cross seal. He wasn't the only person making items with the Lowerdown Cross seal but, having spoken to him about this, he did make a considerable amount. The main reason was to give a range of prices when people visited the pottery.

As this has his personal seal, it means that you are able to say that he made it and hence the price would be higher when originally bought than if it had the Lowerdown Cross seal and obviously there would continue to be a price difference today.

Thanks as always SP for clearing up that "grey" area I had always wondered about.

Would not be at all surprised if these were made for specific market. David Canter of Cranks fame was a leading light in the CPA, and also ran the Cranks restaurant chain. The long running CPA shop in Marshall street was bang next to a Cranks restaurant.
Cranks opened a restaurant at Dartington in the early 70's, and they used a lot of studio pottery in their plates and dinner ware. Winchcombe in particular. At the same time, the Craft shop at Dartington sold a lot of studio pottery and was a specific outlet for David Leach. Indeed, he only lived a few miles away.

A good size and, I assume, you got it for a very competitive price!

Nice to find a lowerdown mark (and even nicer to find a hand signed D.L. on bottom) seen the LD stamp often but not a personal sig.

You put in the miles and so thoroughly deserve it.

Happy Days!!!


He did that when the original plan was to sell it as a Lowerdown piece i.e. cheaply but after decorating he was especially pleased with that aspect and so "upgraded" it.

Strangely this was only 15 mins away, but was there at 0540 with a torch.

2 little condiment bottles with caligraphy, and luckily with their tiny stoppers.

Interestingly the sgraffito motif either side of the writing, is identical
to that on Naomi's storage jar shown earlier in the thread.

I hope this is in the right thread, there are no other marks to indicate a specific pottery but you guys will know better than me.  There is some mega damage to one handle but I don't mind, it is yellower than the photo suggests and I am just happy it didn't go in the bin David Leach - Page 3 Img_2052

Very small, just over 14 cm wide and I thought a small round butter maybe. Cheers for the bump over to DL thread.

Ok, yes that is small, but just right for a small round Stilton or Camambert!

Earthenware piece made for about 5 years from the mid 50's after he left the Leach pottery and moved to Lowerdown. Butter dish perhaps?

A couple of David Leach pieces from the estate sale of Harry Horlock Stringers wife. I often think some of his best work was on this smaller more intimate scale.
